*Buckfast queens are now in stock and ready to ship*

Our Buckfast queens come from a queen breeder in Northern California. (Not Texas)

Buckfast bees are resistant to Tracheal mites and 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.
