These queens are being grafted from a very successful Buckfast queen obtained from Ferguson Apiary in Canada in 2019. We are not able to cross the boarder to get Buckfast queens from Ferguson's in 2020, so the next best thing is to graft from one of the best overwintered Buckfast right here in Ohio. The Buckfast queen we are grafting from is pictured above. Pictured also is her brood pattern.
Ferguson's have been producing Buckfast queens for over 20 years with stock obtained directly from Europe. These are hard to find and will be here in June for pickup at Mount Vernon, OH.
Delivery is expected mid July and as time gets closer we will firm up the date. Pickup in Mount Vernon, OH.
