  • Buckfast Description

    Buckfast bees are yellow to brown in color and resemble what many people consider when picturing a honey bee.


    Buckfast bees are a hybrid. They were developed in the 20th century by Brother Adam of Buckfast Abbey in southwest England. The stock was imported to the United States, by way of Canada, and is now readily available in the US.


    Buckfast bees do well in cool climates. They are very gentle, easy to work with and are excellent honey producers. They have a low tendency to swarm and are economical in the use of winter stores.


    Cold, wet winters are the norm for Buckfast bees, so they’re accustomed to building up the hive size quickly in the spring.


    If your marked queen becomes a drone laying queen within 3 months of purchase, I will replace the Queen free of charge
