Our top bar hives are precision milled in Portland, Oregon using Western Red Cedar. The wood is kiln dried, smoothed and full 1" thick on the hive body. Built using all screw construction, our hives provide superior strength and longevity. Our top bar hive kits are available assembled or unassembled (your choice). All components pre-drilled for quick assembly. Ships free to the contiguous 48 states -- international shipping available.

Choose between the standard wooden roof or the copper roof. We recommend sealing the wooden roof with tung oil (available on our website) to improve its longevity and rain run off. The copper roof looks great and will form a patina as it ages. The copper roof needs no sealing.
Our standard top bar hive comes with milled feet for stability. Upgrade your stand to legs and elevate the hive 36" off the ground for easy access. The hive easily slips down into the stand and can be removed for transport. The roofs on our top bar hives are always shipped to you fully-assembled. The hive body is pre-drilled and shipped unassembled. Assembly is quick and easy with a power drill and phillips or square head bit. Choose the assembled option and we'll assemble the hive body for you!
