My name is Ivan Nielsen. Born in 1970,


I have kept bees since 1995 and worked with queen breeding since 1998.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

Initially I was educated as a farm manager. This education gave me a solid foundation in both the management and the theoretical aspects of bee breeding.
Around the millennium I worked for 3 years at the apiaries of the late Poul Erik Sørensen, a world-renowned Danish queen breeder. This gave me an excellent introduction to the wonderful world of Buckfast queen breeding.


My own beekeeping business is situated on a small farm in the centre of Himmerland, which is a part of Northern Jutland, an area with a great variety of flora and fauna.
