Product Information


We are sold out of 2018 queens, all payments made now will be for our 2019 queens expected to be shipped May 2019. 

We do recommend ordering your queens early to avoid any disappointment as our queen numbers are limited.



Our Mated Local Black Honey Bee Company Queens known as Apis Mellifera Mellifera (AMM) are as near native and pure Welsh black bee that we and other beekeepers in the area can get. Here our Local Welsh Bee Keepers are very keen to get back to the Native black bee in the Welsh Countryside with most of the Area's local hobby Bee Keepers and some commercial only keeping Black bees now a days.

Our Black Honey Bee Company Queens come from our own personal breeding stock which have shown to be good layers and produce a good handling bee although it can be a little skitty on the frame.  They have been kept in a full size hive for a minimum of 5 weeks to show they are good layers. They produce a good crop of honey, will fly in the rain and poor weather conditions when none native bee's stay home and are very hardy and over winter exceptionally well with the minimum of fuss and food.   They are ideal for any beekeeper wanting to try a Black bee breed here in Wales or mainland UK.    

They are reared and mated here in our hill top Apiary in North Wales where they can be bought by post or collected direct from our apiary.  When purchased, the queen bees are supplied in a cage with attendants and she comes unmarked & unclipped.

Our queen bees usually become available from June to August but this is obviously weather dependent - sometimes, we have spare queens available early in the year before June. These have been over wintered in full hives or full size 6 frame nucs and will have been use for our own production. Email or call us to check availability and price

We always ask that you are fully sure that you need a queen before buying from us, if you have a questions please do contact us beforehand.

Beginners please note that a colony of bees cannot be started with just a queen and need at least a Nucleus colony of bees

All our bees and queens before shipping are fully disease checked in full accordance with NBU and FERA guidelines.

Queen Bees are only available for shipping to UK mainland addresses.
