GBBG supplies several hundred native queens per year but these must be ordered and paid for in advance. The order book is often full for the current season by February so book early to avoid disappointment.
GBBG hosts an open day every year where the queen rearing process is demonstrated.
Redmond Williams is considered to be the leading bee instrumental insemination expert in Ireland
