Amazing for Disabled Beeks just live it (bees do too!)

Wonderful service great attention to details I needed to make my beekeeping easier for me. Delivery was smooth and direct to my garden bee enclosure. I’ve added handles so I can hold on and hooks inside to hang my hive tool so I don’t have to bend. Thank you to the team a great job

I love my new Hyde hives long hive

The hive looks amazing, I’ve had lots of comments from passers by about how good it looks. I’m looking forward to installing a colony and working with it at waist height, no leaning over! The gas struts on the roof do a great job.

Excellent Quality & Service

Really impressed with the design and build quality - stout timber, close-fitting joints, should last for decades. Satisfying to see the whole operation is run sustainably on site from raw logs to finished product. The guys were most helpful loading this very substantial item onto my pickup. Thanks to all.

First Long Hive

I first saw this at the National Honey Show 2021 and was immediately impressed by the quality and the potential ease to manage two hives in one. Presently having 6-8 National hives with a brood and half (and 14x12) and then two superstores there is a lot of back breaking work. This must be the way ahead! Presently still in my garage awaiting the 2022 season. Dean and Matt have both been very helpful throughout the whole process from the Honey show through to delivery. It is a beautiful thing and will be reluctant to put it outside😂
Now, what to do with those Nationals😱

Real Quality

I absolutely love my 40 frame Hyde long hive. The quality is outstanding and you can tell it's a Beekeeper making these because there is nothing I can think of that I'd change or improve on. So well built, I honestly don't know how they do it for the price. The moment I watched the Black Mountain Honey review on YouTube I knew I was going to get one. Cheers Matt and Dean, it was a pleasure to deal with you.
