Hi, we are David and Sheri Burns. There's nothing that compares to having your own beehives. Perhaps Grandpa used to keep bees and you would like to as well. Take a look around our site, or feel free to give us a call (217) 427-2678. Let us help you with all your honey bee needs. We are located near Fairmount, Illinois. We carry a full line of supplies and appreciate your business!
Here we go with our famed and legendary hive, completely painted and assembled. Comes with wooden frames and foundation. Shipping is included in this price. If you are comparing prices, please take in consideration that while you might find a similar hive for a few dollars less ask these questions: 1. Is it assembled? 2. Is it painted? 3. Does it include wooden frames and foundation? 3. How much is shipping?
We make our bee keeping hives right here in central Illinois, using wood pruchased from a small town lumber yard. Thank you for supporting small, family American businesses!
Buying honey bees online can be hard to find with all the equipment and bees. We are here to help take the confusion out of keeping honey bees. Learn all about beekeeping from EAS certified master beekeeper, David Burns and start keeping bees today!
Bee hives are becoming harder to find and it can take 3-4 weeks to get a hive. Why not take advantage of our FREEDOM KIT, 2 completely assembled and painted hives without bees. All necessary equipment to get started is included too. Click on the link above or call us at 217-427-2678.
Did you know Honey bees fly 55,000 miles to bring us 1 pound of honey. During a honey bee's life (about 40 days) a honey bee will gather about 1/12th of a teaspoon of honey. Bees must visit 2 million flowers to gather 1 pound of honey. How many bees are in a 3 lb package of bees? About 10,000.
