    • The Buckfast Bee is a very gentle strain of Italian Honey Bee originally bred by Brother Adam of Buckfast Abbey. The Canadian Buckfast are a line of Buckfast Queens maintained by Bill Ferguson in Ontario, Canada. They are said to overwinter better as they are adapted to the harsh Canadian climate. The Danish Buckfast line is maintained by Keld Brandstrup in Ruds Vedby, Denmark. This line is known for it’s gentleness and excellent honey production. In general, the Buckfast bees overwinter better than regular Italians as they maintain a smaller brood nest and use less stores. They also have a lower swarming tendency.
