Details

Raise your own bees with this starter beekeeping kit. Each wooden hive is Made in the USA and is ideal for urban spaces—like small backyards or roof decks. Stack the modular components, and the bees will seal it up with a byproduct of their honey making—there’s no need for nails. A copper roof protects the hive from the elements, and a clear panel lets you peek in on the action. Once the hive is set up, order your own colony of bees, and soon it will be buzzing with activity.

Perfect for Beginners!

I am a Beekeeper and wanted to see all of the different kinds of bee hives made through out the US. This was the perfect beginner set. Everything came pre-assembled, lacquered (for protection), and ready to go!

Great quality and easy to follow manual to help anyone. I especially appreciated the inclusion of their Club. It allows me to ask questions when I need help.

About Honey Bee City

Save the Bees

Even if you’re a beginner or have limited outdoor space, Honey Bee City’s beekeeping starter kit can help you join the urban beekeeping movement.

This modular beehive is Made in the USA and easy to assemble—stack it up and the bees will seal the structure with propolis, a byproduct of their honey making. There’s a clear panel to peek inside, and the copper roof is a nice design element that also protects the hive.

Bees help produce about one third of our food through their pollinating efforts, so having them around is vital. For the past few years, hives have been disappearing at an alarming rate, in part because of Colony Collapse Disorder, when worker bees disappear and the colony dies out.

“Beekeeper Rick” Cousins created this simplified system after moving to an urban neighborhood, where his commercial beekeeping supplies were oversized. While helping out the bees, you’ll also reap the benefits—like nutrient-rich honey and beeswax.

Before you get started, check your local laws about hive regulations and registration. You’ll also need to “hire” (i.e. buy) your buzzing workers, and local bees are best. Contact a beekeeping organization in your area and they’ll be happy to help.
