    That would be Buckfast not buckfest. There are plenty of queen breeders in the country - many advertise in the American Bee Journal and Bee Culture magazines. If you don't take those, there is a list of bee suppliers here on BeeSource - http://www.beesource.com/bees-supplies/united-states/ There are a limited number of Buckfast suppliers - R Weaver from Texas is the one that comes first to mind. All of the original Buckast Bees trace to Buckfast Abby. Some people have been able to get Buckfast queens out of Canada.
