Product Information


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

We do recommend ordering your Welsh bee nuc's early to avoid any disappointment as our Nuc numbers are very selective and limited.


This is our locally bred black bee - its as near to a native Welsh Black bee that we and the local bee keepers can produce. 

Our Welsh Black Honey Bee Colonies, sometimes called AMM Black bees are bred from our own stock and are kept fulltime in our Hillside Apiary here in North Wales. They come from proven stock which have a good temperament but can bee a little skitty and fast on the frame when doing inspections.  

They fly in much worse weather conditions that non native bee's and rain does not stop play, so whilst your buckfast beehive will be not fly much in the rain our Welsh black bees will.,

Our nuc's are available for collection from May through to later in the year  - Obviously this start and stop period is weather dependent as sometimes they might be available earlier or later in the season so please do contact us to see if we have nucs or queens available.  We can also post the nuc's to any mainland address.

These 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 fast on the frame and more lively in the hive. They produce a good crop of honey 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 anywhere in the UK mainland

Our Nucleus colonies are supplied in a 5 Frame Transport Nucleus box on Hoffman Deep frames suitable for National and WBC hives with a Standard Deep brood box, although we can supply on 14 x 12 or Langstroth mediums if required and booked early enough.  Within your Nuc box there is a minimum of 5 well stocked comb with a Queen that has raised all the brood provided on the frames.

Our bees are fully checked in accordance with NBU and FERA guidelines.

We sometimes have over wintered Nucleus colonies with our own breeding queens available earlier in the season.  Please contact us to discuss this before ordering -
