Welsh Dark Honeybee Colonies and a Large selection of Equipment for sale in South Wales.

I've decided to downsize regarding the number of Colonies I'm managing. Simply reducing my numbers to fund the purchase of new processing equipment. I prefer quality to quantity in order to manage bees sustainably and in the right way with bee welfare my first priority.

Good Calm Temperament bees Overwintered 2019 Colonies with a mixture of Unmarked 2019/2020 Prolific laying Welsh Dark Queen's

I don't use Queen Excluders, all my Queen's are unmarked and WINGS ARE NOT CLIPPED!!

No disease, no sign of any Varroa.

I manage all my bees as Natural & Sustainable as is humanly possible.

I would like the Bees to go to someone with the same sustainable approach as I've taken. Making sure that bee welfare their utmost importance.

I use Top Quality 14x12 frames with only Premier Foundation in order to allow the bees to work with as much free space for them to choose how they want to build comb. This allows the queen to choose where she lays, as opposed to confining the bees using smaller frames. This promotes a more natural approach.

All Colonies are thriving and the Hives are full of Brood in all stages with plenty of Stores & Pollen.
Even in the rain the bees are out gathering, thus they are very hardy and accustomed to damp conditions.

12 Colonies in total available, here's the breakdown;

Maisemore information:

All Maisemore Polystyrene Bee hives and hive parts are made here in the UK and are of 100g/litre. This makes the hives up to 3 times stronger than polystyrene used in packaging. When painted with smooth masonry paint these polystyrene hives will last for 30 + years.

Payne's Bee Farm information;

Polystyrene is a great material for beehives:
Its made from a very high density material, 100g/litre - upto 3 times stronger than the material used for packaging.
Its lightweight and durable.
Its insulation properties also makes it especially suitable for nucs and small colonies as fewer bees are required to maintain the heat required for effective brood rearing.
