Hello all,

I hope you are all keeping well, especially during these challenging times.

I will have several national nucleus colonies for sale from Spring. Each nucleus will have the following:
  • Six complete frames, including stores, brood covering at least 4 frames, and a 2020 marked queen.
  • The bees are are descended from Danish Buckfast stock. They are very easy to handle and expand quickly.
  • The bees have been treated for varroa and are from happy, healthy stock.
  • As a commercial beekeeper my bees are my livelihood. They have to perform. There are no duds.
Please note, I will only sell bees to beekeepers who have previous experience keeping bees, have passed their BBKA basic exam and have spent time with a good club handling bees, or have a suitable mentor to help you get started.

The price for each nucleus is £230, including a Paynes poly nuc.

I am located in Oldham, Greater Manchester.

Please PM me for further details.

Hi Alison,

Unfortunately I’m sold out of overwintered nucleus colonies. However, if you are based around GM I would be happy to signpost you to other beekeepers who may have bees available
