In 2024 we will be bringing in Canadian Buckfast Queens which are resistant to Tracheal mites and do well in cool climates. Buckfast bees originated in Ontario Canada (https://hbrc.ca/history-of-buckfast-bees-in-ontario/) 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.
