It’s illogical to harm the forests while on a quest to help bees. Until recently, the privilege of owning a sustainable pine hive at a moderate price was fiction. That’s why when we introduced our FSC Certified pine Langstroth hive, we saw a new boom of interest. Not only are beekeepers concerned about bees, they are interested in responsibly crafted hives made from ethically grown and forested lumber--resources that don’t harm the very land and vegetation the bees foster.
We are excited to announce that our Warre and Top Bar Hives are now available for pre-order in beautiful FSC-certified Sugar Pine. Pre-order today and receive 20% off top bar or Warre hives in either wood option!
Not only does our Sugar Pine stay true to our core value of sustainability, but it is also a strong and handsome wood that makes excellent beehives for your yard or apiary. With small and infrequent knots, Sugar Pine is strong and offers great insulation for your bees.
Warre and Top Bar Hives offer numerous advantages for beekeepers. Mainly, neither of these hive models require extremely heavy lifting, making them much more accessible options for folks of all ages and abilities. The Top Bar Hive is extremely easy to manage and steward, though it needs more frequent inspections during spring and summer, and the Warre Hive was designed specifically for a certain philosophy of hands-off beekeeping developed by Abbe Emil Warre; a great hive if you travel a lot or like to let your bees be!
The addition of sugar pine hives to our line of goods has brought numerous positive and exciting changes to our company. We’re experiencing fast expansion in a way we can be proud of. While we’re thrilled to be progressing and growing, our production mill is maxed with our swelling number of orders! We’re very busy bees keeping up with our workload and we want to be able to give each hive the care and attention it deserves. That’s why we’re offering Top Bar and Warre hives for pre-order (in either wood option). Place an order now to get yours in time for beekeeping season. The extra time will allow us to uphold our high quality standards and will give you some time to read up on beekeeping practices and plan for your new hives. After all, sometimes it’s nice having something to “pine” after.
