I am 34 years old, a qualified apiarist for many years, I quickly became interested in breeding queens because, in my point of view, it is the most interesting and exciting part of beekeeping.
Today I own dozens of hives for production and breeding. In season, I spend most of the time monitoring colonies and raising queens.
I favour soft bees because my hives are located in urban and semi-urban areas,
The different Buckfast F0 lines I use for picking come from Denmark. Natural fecundation in the apiary often gives excellent results.
During a trip to Hungary, I met with Hungarian queen breeders, we developed a mutual understanding and now I can have privileged access to their queens and to another approach to breeding
