Buckfast Marken Foundation

Buckfast Marken Foundation was founded on 26 February 2013. The board consists of:

Piet verkooijen - Chairman
Pierre de Koning - Secretary
Herman Groen - Treasurer

The main objective of the foundation is to raise and perfect the "Buckfast bee". We strive to accomplish this goal by:

  • exploiting the breeding station in Marken;
  • maintaining contact with other (Buckfast) bee breeding stations and queen famers at home and abroad; and
  • making the station as accessible as possible to interested beekeepers at home and abroad.

The foundation has an idealistic goal and is not set out to make profit.
