Fantastic bees

This is my 1st year beekeeping.
I purchased 2 Buckfast Nucs along with hives etc from Angharad and Gruff after attending one of their beginners courses (which was fantastic).
These bees are so calm that I hardly ever have to smoke them, and because they are so easy to handle my 10 year old daughter loves helping with the inspections and is confident when handling them.
Angharad and Gruff are always happy to help whether it be advice on what to purchase or answering any questions I may have.
This is a fantastic family run business and I could not recommend them enough.
Keep up the hard work. You’re all doing an amazing job 🙌🏻

I collected my Buckfast Bee Nuc on the 16 th June. The bees coped well with a 40 minute journey. I was nervous transferring them to their new hive but appreciated the advice on collection as well as watching their helpful videos. The bees are very calm and learning so much. Thankyou!

Excellent friendly and professional service. Bees settled in very well and rapidly drawing out new comb. I will certainly be using again for my beekeeping supplies.

Lovely business to deal with and fantastically good natured bees now fitting well into their new home and drawing out plenty of new comb. Will be more than happy to source more nuc's from Gwenyn Gruffydd again.
