I am a Breeding Group of one base near Lampeter. Bees should keep themselves and go some way towards keeping their owner.
Bees that give a surplus of 80lbs of honey and never need feeding are more profitable than bees that give 100lbs of honey and need to be fed 50lbs of sugar in the autumn or when there is prolonged bad weather or a summer starvation warning from the NBU.
The aim of this group is to maintain and breed from bees that are non-swarming, superceding, docile, native types that give the maximum amount of surplus year on year per man hour of work input.
