Bee Hive Kits including the Bees - Now Taking Order for 2020

 Your bees will not be available for pickup until spring, but you may pick up your equipment at any time. If you will be attending a beginner's class or bee club meeting that we will be teaching or attending, we also offer free equipment delivery.  



Our Kits Compared To Others.


Our kits are Missouri made include all the boxes you may need for a first season hive in Missouri or our surrounding states.  All our hives are made of commercial grade or better lumber, built to the Langstroth standard and made to last. 

More Than One Box  - Many farm stores sell a budget quality "complete" hive kit that only has one deep box. If you purchase a strong 5-frame NUC, you could need another deep box for that hive within a week or two and with good weather should eventually need honey supers.

Langstroth Standard - Having boxes that are built to standard is important to insure that future box purchases will be interchangeable between hives. It also insures proper bee space is maintained within the hive to help with pest management and frame handling. 

10 Frames that are each slightly too wide can cause lots of problems with bee space.

Built to Last  - We have designed our box joints, inner covers, telescoping covers and screened bottom boards for durability.  We are still using our original deluxe covers on our own hives.  Our bottom boards are built with strength in mind. No one wants to worry about whether their strong, heavy hive will topple over because the bottom board collapsed.

Each of the following kits can be purchased with a 5-Frame NUC. Italian, Carniolan and Russian 5-Frame NUCs available.  For more bee information, please see our "Bees For Sale Page".  If you order your kit with a nuc, you can schedule a free hands-on familization class for the evening you pick up your NUC. *This class is a supplement to, not a replacement for, a beginnner's beekeeping class.
