Medium Hive Starter Kit

I was disappointed not having the instructions included in the package. But I was happy with the kit and looking forward to the spring to set it up.

Super nice boxes well worth the money I definitely would buy again. I also used the quad pay. Which is a really nice option

Cedar Hive

Just got this one but already have two. like the Cedar so I don't have to paint. Holding up well enough to buy my third one.

A beautiful hive!

My 8 frame complete hive is all glued and ******* together already. It fit together very well and was easy to assemble. I love the peaked top and am glad that there is a board at the bottom of it to limit the bee space. My only concern is that my other 8 frame boxes might not fit. I have read that your 8 frame boxes are a bit bigger (only by 1/2"). I have not tried them however. (I didn't know the 8 frame box doesn't have a standard.) Other than that, I'm extremely pleased with this hive. I would highly recommend it!

High quality materials

Excellent wood quality and precision cuts make assembly a breeze. Took tung oil beautifully and ready for next season. Originally bought as a gift for a new bee keeping friend...nope...ordering another for them.
