Over Wintered 5 Frame Nucleus With Buckfast Queen

Availability: We aim to have the first nucs ready for the beginning of April and to fulfil all orders by the end of the month. Please be aware that good/bad weather during the spring can influence how early collections will start. STOCKS ARE LIMITED!
£270.00

Pre orders now open!

Our Overwintered nucs are headed by a 2021 Buckfast queen, marked white. Busting with bees and ready to be transferred into a full-size hive. Buckfast bees are known for being very prolific. Our overwintered nucs will usually build up in time to produce a spring crop of honey and definitely a summer crop, as long as the conditions are right and the colony is managed correctly.

COLLECTION ONLY! PAY THE FULL AMOUNT OF £270.00 OR A £70.00 NON REFUNDABLE BOOKING FEE. If only a booking fee is paid, the remaining balance is payable just before collection (£200.00)

All nucs are COLLECTION ONLY. Please make sure you leave a CORRECT contact number and email. If we cannot contact you, we cannot arrange collection of your bees! In the event that we are unable to contact you your order will be put to the bottom of the orders list until we are able to contact you or you contact us.

All of our overwintered nucs are wintered in polystyrene nuc boxes to ensure they have they are kept warm in the colder months. Produced on British Standard National DN4 frames and transferred over to a temporary correx travel box the day before collection. Each nuc will have a laying queen, three to four frames of brood in different stages (eggs, larvae and sealed brood) with at least one frame of food. Along with our honey production colonies all overwintered nucs are treated for varroa during the Autumn using approved treatments, keeping colonies strong and healthy for you to collect in the spring. Our nucs are perfect for all levels of experience whether you're a 'newbee' taking on your first hive or a commercial beekeeper wanting to expand.
