It’s illogical to harm the forests while on a quest to help bees. Until recently, the privilege of owning a sustainable pine hive at a moderate price was fiction. That’s why when we introduced our FSC Certified pine Langstroth hive, we saw a new boom of interest. Not only are beekeepers concerned about bees, they are interested in responsibly crafted hives made from ethically grown and forested lumber--resources that don’t harm the very land and vegetation the bees foster.
We are excited to announce that our Warre and Top Bar Hives are now available for pre-order in beautiful FSC-certified Sugar Pine. Pre-order today and receive 20% off top bar or Warre hives in either wood option!
Not only does our Sugar Pine stay true to our core value of sustainability, but it is also a strong and handsome wood that makes excellent beehives for your yard or apiary. With small and infrequent knots, Sugar Pine is strong and offers great insulation for your bees.
Warre and Top Bar Hives offer numerous advantages for beekeepers. Mainly, neither of these hive models require extremely heavy lifting, making them much more accessible options for folks of all ages and abilities. The Top Bar Hive is extremely easy to manage and steward, though it needs more frequent inspections during spring and summer, and the Warre Hive was designed specifically for a certain philosophy of hands-off beekeeping developed by Abbe Emil Warre; a great hive if you travel a lot or like to let your bees be!
