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.
If you come from further afield, you are more then welcome to stay overnight in our Roulotte. After the explanation, if the weather is good, we can take a walk to see wild hives and we invite you for an evening meal for a small contribution. Just contact us to discuss options and arrange your visit.
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.
50 Kilomters from us, free of charge.
Further afield: delivery possible for a charge, to be discussed.
We can deliver the hives to the Netherlands and Belgium a few times a year.
