Single Box hives full depth - $460

Frames only (10) ¾ depth - $370

Nucleus colonies (5 frames) Full depth - $330
Nucleus colonies (5 frames) 3/4 depth - $300

Each single box hive is ready for it's second brood box.
Therefore bees obtained will have time to build up strength and yield a box of honey this summer.

We release our spring colonies as soon as new queens start laying and they are capping the new brood.


• Frames are mostly plastic
• Wooden meshed floor, crown board and galvanised roof
• Wooden boxes and bases are paraffin treated and painted (where appropriate)


Colonies can be collected from our home base in Whanganui.

We suggest that where applicable we transfer bees into your own gear here in Whanganui before you travel home at the end of the day.

Other delivery options can be discussed with you when you place an order.

Ongoing care

We are keen to see your investment succeed and can offer advice for the early stages of development of your beehive, particularly for hobbyists.

Bought a four frame nut. Really friendly and helpful when I called round to pick it up. Will definitely keep this in mind for future.
