Buying your Hive 

When you come to buy your hive from us, we will of course explain in detail how the hive works and how and where to put it up. We will show you our apiary and discuss the best spots and ways to install the hive at your property. 


We can come to look at your garden to see where best to place the hive and deliver your hive. Includes an explanation of the hive.
