Our Products
Our "Starter Kits" are basically complete bee hives, without the frames or bees. Each kit comes fully assembled, finished, and ready to use. The kit includes a Screened Bottom Board with slide-out mite inspection tray, three Medium Boxes, a vented Inner Cover, and our own design of peaked, vented outer cover with metal top. As most kits are made to order, we're happy to make any changes you'd like. 

Available now in three options:
  • Locally sourced Pine / Spruce, sanded and painted in your choice of vibrant colours. Pick one colour or let us mix and match for a fun, unique look! $340
  • Locally sourced Pine / Spruce, carefully finished with gel-stain and four coats of hand-rubbed tung oil for $385
  • Sustainably harvested, Vancouver Island grown Western Red Cedar, and finished with four coats of hand-rubbed 'bee-friendly' tung oil, for $440 (with one deep box and one medium box, as shown here), or $475 (with three medium boxes)
