Buckfast queen cell

Buckfast queen cells are an ideal choice if you’re looking to ensure the harmonious integration of a queen bee into an existing colony. Once the cell is placed in the hive, the queen bee hatches within 2 days. If weather conditions allow, in a further nine days, the queen will take off for its first mating flight, and soon enough you will be able to enjoy a new generation of bees. Hatched Buckfast queens can be mated with drones of your choice or random drones encountered on a first mating flight. This means you have the opportunity to partially breed your own bees and produce be qualities that are best suited to your needs.

For the safety of the cells themselves, the cells can only be picked up directly from our bee farm. Please book your queen bee cell in advance.
