I’ve had Buckies from Peter Stöfen in the past but that was before Brexit. Anybody exporting queens to the U.K. will know the hoops to jump through.I’m actually a big Buckfast fan! The Carnicas in Germany are great and the friendliest bees you could imagine but I’ve been completely blown away by Buckfast queens I get from Paul Jungels (or his distributors now that he doesn’t sell directly anymore) in Luxembourg.
I was going to see what the UK has on offer though - a lot of interesting stuff seems to be happening in terms of queen breeding. Also not sure how to get the ladies into the country from continental Europe, I suppose it would still be possible somehow though.
Here in the U.K. I’ve always been pleased with my bees from BS honey bees.
Ged Marshall has a good reputation too.
