Absolutely stunning hive. We purchased the long hive, so large enough for two colonies, one each end. The hives are made using locally sourced cedar wood which is milled on site, and lovingly built by hand; sustainability at its core. We have oak landing boards, and gas struts that make opening the roof a cinch even for the kids. The quality of the build is outstanding, I have to say I feel these long hives are worth £900+, considerably more than they are currently retailing for! Especially if you compare them to the cost of other hives. Absolutely beautifully made. Delivered by the team to your door as well. You couldn't ask for more. We have been on holiday so only adding our first colony in a couple of days' time, but can't wait to experience horizontal hive beekeeping for the first time. Massive thanks to Matt & his team for a first class experience, not something anyone should take for granted these days.
