Hive Suppliers & Plans

Ready Made Hives

I often get asked about hive suppliers.  This is a difficult question for me to answer as I make my own hives.  However, based on hives that I have seen, the Warré hives made by Matthew Mercy in North Dorset are of an exceptionally high quality.

Make Your Own

For those who wish to make their own Warré hives (which I have found easier to make than horizontal top bar hives) a set of drawings by John Haverson is here.  If you live within collecting distance of Westbury, in Wiltshire, Western Red Cedar of appropriate sizes can be obtained from Martin Osborne.  Full details are here.
