There are many benefits to producing and supplying bees from this more temperate area: you will have bees in the UK in time for the early fruiting crops as well as tree pollen, that could help achieve a good start to the season.
These bees are characterised by all the normal Buckfast traits, easy to work with, good honey producers with low swarming instincts.
