Priced right - New England hive custom-designed with our winters and northern honey bee behaviors in mind. Includes the unique Slatted Rack, a proven companion to a beekeeper's swarm control techniques and moisture control efforts. Hive is 13.5 inches wide, walls are 3/4 inch thick. Includes a top winter prep super kit.

This is a complete beehive, 8 Frame UNASSEMBLED. Crafted in New Hampshire with sustainably harvested white pine. Drop by to talk about your assembly & painting needs.  COVID-19: Just give Athena a call. We can have them ready for pick up and you can pay over the phone or bring a check.

No laminated woods used in the hive except for plywood in the covers as we have found it holds up better and provides weight in the Telescoping & inner covers. Frames are wood with quality beeswax wired foundation. Crafted by New Hampshire & Maine carpenters. Only the boxes and frames are unassembled. One deep and two mediums.
