After seeing what's out there on the market, our customers come here looking for quality, well made American Hives. Look no further, here they are...made right here in Illinois.
Many years ago when we first started beekeeping (24 years now) we called a beekeeping supply company and admitted on the phone that we didn't know what to buy. The response we got was, well, less than stellar: "when you figure it out, call us back". We decided that when we started our company, our customers would never be left to "figure it out".
Our hive kits are assembled and painted. Made by master craftsmen. These workhorses will outlast your lifetime. Our boxes are rabbet joints to expose LESS wood to the elements, which eliminates cracks and buckles caused by finger joints. Our telescoping top covers are covered with painted aluminum --which will never rust and stay looking nice for a long time. We didn't cut corners with our inner covers either, these will NOT fall apart on you after the first year as some others do. Boxes come complete with all the frames and foundations so you don't need to spend time trying to figure out which frames go with what foundations and what sizes you need. Complete kit. Allow 2 - 3 weeks for delivery.
What about customer service? There are many places out there now that will sell you hive equipment and bees but provide no customer service after receiving your merchandise and bees. Here you will receive customer service either by phone, email, or personally in our beekeeping store in Fairmount, Illinois
Pick up available, just call!
For winter, place our winter-bee-kind on top of our beehive to help your bees survive the winter!
