    Hello Kenny…just found your blog from bwrangler. I’m in N. Florida, not far. I share a traditional hive with a friend and we have recently built a topbar for our house, don’t have the bees yet. Look forward to hearing more about beekeeping in the south…we have friends who live NW of Asheville so we are up that way every blue moon. Regards!

    Hi kenny61..i saw your blog and im intrigued by your Top Bar Hive Design. I have seen many TBH’s on the Internet and i really like the design you have. I live in Ga and would like to purchase one of your hives. What do you charge for a TBH and what kind of woods do you use? Can you send me your contact info, or post it here so we can discuss this further? Since you are in NC we can discuss me picking up one of your top bar hives if shipping is going to be too expensive. I think its wonderful what you are doing for the bees and you build some of the prettiest hives ive ever seen.Thanks

      Hi Crystal..thank you for your kind comments i appreciate them..i make a lot of my top bar hives every year and always sell out of the Cypress hives as theyre more durable and will outlast any of the other woods that i use..if you would like to contact me regarding purchasing one of my hives you can email me at and we can discuss the options available and the prices i charge for my hives..they are rather heavy, usually around 80 pounds..i have shipped them as far as california from NC but that cost neary 130 dollars for shipping alone..i intend to break hives down in the future for better shipping rates and easier packaging..since youre in GA it might be less expensive to come pick up a hive or make arrangements to meet me half way which wouldnt be a problem..thanks again for your kind words and i look forward to speaking with you soon…kenny

I have looked at a lot of beehives on the internet and yours are some of the best looking ones ive seen. I am going to be in NC the first week of September and would like to make arrangements to pick them up at that time.Please let me know what i need to do to make the deposit for the hives.Thank you for your time and i look forward to beekeeping in my new Top Bar Bee Hives and hopefully all the honey i will get.
