    Today the Buckfast bee is in use by many beekeepers around the
    world, with lines that are selected according to a set standard
    of desirable Buckfast qualities based on behavior and performance
    rather than phenotypical/biometrical characteristics as often
    used by bee breeders using other types of bee.
    The result is a healthy and stable bee with the main characteristics
    being docility, vitality, industry, low swarming, high honey production
    and economic use of stores amongst more minor ones, for example,
    low propolis use and lack of brace comb.

    Bee breeding groups that have separate agenda to Buckfast beekeepers
    have disseminated much misinformation about the strain. Some of
    this is, in part, due to “Buckfast” queens being supplied
    from unreliable breeders who have not followed the correct breeding
    methods usually employed in breeding the strain. This has led
    to some end users being unsatisfied and to incorrect conclusions
    being drawn. One of the commonest errors repeatedly stated is
    that as Buckfast bees are hybrids that they will not breed true.
    The correctly bred Buckfast lines breed true because they are
    genetically stable, if Buckfast queens are mated to Buckfast drones,
    of course, the result will be Buckfast. It is doubtful that there
    is a present day population of bees that does not have some genetic
    material from other subspecies. The mating of the Buckfast queens
    is controlled ether by instrumental insemination or by reliable
    mainland and island mating stations.

    The centre of Buckfast breeding has moved from the England to
    Germany, where numerous matings stations are in operation for
    the beekeepers to select from. Die Gemeinschaft der europäischen
    Buckfastimker is the body that unites Buckfast beekeepers across
    Europe. Their website is: www.gdeb.eu
    Many breeders have made their pedigrees available on the Internet
    and these maybe viewed at the following website: perso.fundp.ac.be/~jvandyck/homage/elver this gives a good indication of the terrific amount of work done
    by Buckfast breeders carrying on the work started by Brother Adam.

    A forum has been created for English speaking Buckfast beekeepers
    at this address: bbgroup.forum-phpbb.co.uk Membership is free and open to all.

    As mentioned above, there are numerous Buckfast breeders, the
    majority of which are in Europe. These breeders continue the work
    started by Brother Adam. It is a big responsibility; the work
    done by Brother Adam cannot be repeated as some of the original
    material used is not now available in its former state,
    the reason being either through heavy hybridization or extinction.
    Where a population of bees is heavily hybridized through uncontrolled
    crossings it is difficult, but not impossible, to fix characteristics
    of use in breeding. It just makes the work more demanding.

    The United Kingdom was the birthplace of the Buckfast bee and
    it is inconceivable that from the mid 1990’s until 2011
    there was not a single serious breeding program for Buckfast bees.
    This situation needs to be rectified and a UK based breeding group
    has been formed with the primary objective to commence a breeding
    program, to provide access to reliable mating stations in the
    UK and genuine Buckfast breeding material. A decision was made
    to re-activate the mating station formerly used by Brother Adam
    at Sherberton on Dartmoor as well as establish two more mating
    stations on Exmoor. In addition to these mating stations, instrumental
    insemination will also be used in the breeding program. WHY BUCKFAST BEES?

    The question is often asked “why should I keep Buckfast bees?”
    There are many reasons amongst which are the following:
    As mentioned above, Buckfast bees are prolific, industrious, vigorous
    as well as being docile and can be handled with ease , they do
    not swarm excessively like Carniolian bees; they make economic
    use of their stores - unlike Italian bees which are prone to turn
    all their stores into brood and then starve to death; they are
    healthy and resistant to brood diseases whereas Mellifera type
    bees often have problems with brood diseases (both types of foulbrood
    and chalk brood); they are resistant to Acarine disease which
    the yellow type of Italian is very susceptible to.


    If there is a honeyflow - these bees will produce a crop. The Buckfast strain of bee has been bred and selected by beekeepers
    for over ninety years with the aim
    of including as many valuable characteristics as possible with the
    overriding theme of a bee that is bred for beekeepers to have the
    maximum production for a minimum of input, both in management and
    care, as possible.
