We have achieved our accreditation to the DASH scheme; Disease Accreditation Scheme for Honeybees, this is a an accreditation set up between the NBU (National Bee Unit, APHA (Animal and Plant Advisory Unit)) and the BFA (Bee Farmers Association).

The Nuc:

Provided on Langstroth frames with brood at all stages and supplied in a brand new box (Either correx or Brand New Quatri Poly nuc) depending on selectd choice.

I got bees ❤️

Arrived nice and early, a quick call because the nuc was different and I couldn't work out how to open the entrance. All sorted and we have orientation flights happening. Great customer service to go with the great bees

"My God, it's full of Bees!" 😁

Arrived on time, put them into a Langstroth Assembled Beehive by Anel a week later, weather was too cold to move them any sooner.
Well happy with my first bees. 😁
