*QUEENS IN STOCK AND READY TO DISPATCH*
*ORDER BEFORE 9:00AM MONDAY-FRIDAY TO QUALIFY FOR SAME DAY DISPATCH*
We import Buckfast and Carniolan queen bees for use in our nucs and for sale separately. We use imported queen bees in our own production stocks as they work equally as well as our British bred queen bees and are more readily available due to earlier and better breeding conditions on the continent. All of the imported queen bees come from a trusted European breeder and arrive in the UK accompanied with a health certificate and are inspected on arrival by the NBU.
We use selected breeding stock to produce British queen bees for sale and for use in our own production colonies. We breed from Buckfast mothers which we favour at Honeyfields Bee Farm because of their gentle nature, good honey production and their ability to make it through the sometimes harsh English winter. Our queen producer, developed his queen rearing skills working on a large commercial operation in Australia helping to maintain over 3000 queen mating nucs. The operation he worked for, was at the time, one of the main suppliers of queen bees and package bees to the U.S for the almond pollination.
We have queen bees for sale from Mid April (weather permitting) through the spring and summer until the end of September.
