We recently went off on our annual visit to Devon to see family, and meet up for birthday celebrations. Which has us inevitably consuming lots of cake and beverages. What has this to do with Honey bees I hear you ask yourselves. Well every year for the last five years we have made a pilgrimage to what I feel is the holy grail of beekeeping, Buckfast Abbey. The home of the world famous beekeeper the late Brother Adam.
