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.
When you buy hives and other beekeeping equipment from us, know that we're always available by phone, e-mail, or in person at our retail store to assist you. We keep bees ourselves and understand how to use each type of hive we sell. We want you to succeed as a beekeeper!
They are finally finished! It took a few months longer than expected, but the plans to make our top bar hive are ready for purchase and immediate download from this page: http://www.beethinking.com/products/top-bar-hive-plans

They are available in three different packages:

2) $39 Hive plans + hardware. You'll receive the digital download immediately, as well as the hardware shipped to you shortly thereafter.
3) $89 Hive plans + hardware + top bars. Same as above, except you'll also receive 28 milled top bars. The top bars are the most difficult and dangerous part to make with basic power tools, so we highly recommend using ours.
