Our hives are built in Portland, Oregon from Western Red Cedar. In addition to beekeeping supplies, we also provide bee swarm removal, beekeeping classes, and hive consultations.
We've used the same cedar top bar hives and Warre hives we sell in our own apiary since 2008. Based on our testing and customer feedback, we've continued to refine the hives we build. We're proud to offer what we believe are the most innovative, well-made hives in the world.
Top Bar Hives
Top bar hives are a great option for those looking for a simple hive to open and manage, without heavy boxes or a lot of extra equipment required. Bees build their own combs and tend to be more docile than those in vertical hives with stacked boxes. Our cedar top-bar hives feature a full-length viewing window for simple monitoring.

Warre hives are perfect for those looking for a hands-off beehive that lets the bees build their own natural, foundationless combs. Bees in the wild build from the top of the cavity downward, and in these hives they do just that. While there are still boxes to lift, they are much lighter than Langstroth boxes. Our cedar Warre hives come with optional viewing windows in each box. Learn more about our Warre hives
Langstroth hives are the most common hives in use throughout North America. Ours are made from the finest kiln dried Western Red Cedar. They work interchangeably with other Langstroth boxes and frames, but last much longer and weigh less. Learn more about our Langstroth hives
