Beginners Kits

Our Beginner Kits are perfect for the aspiring beekeeper just starting their journey into this fascinating hobby. They come complete with everything from a beekeeper's suit to all the necessary tools to the beehive itself!

For the new beekeeper that just wants to get going, our assembled and painted beginner kits are ready to go out of the box with minimal setup. They can be unpacked upon receipt of the equipment and put in your location right away. Just add the honey bees!

If you are a DIY type of person and prefer to really get involved with the details of hobby beekeeping, our unassembled beginner beekeeping kits are for you. You will follow detailed instructions to assemble and paint the complete beehive. It's a satisfying learning experience and you will know your beehive inside and out. The only step left is to add some package bees, or if you are the wild type, attempt to attract a swarm of bees

Be sure to visit our beekeeping learning center for articles that cover everything you'll ever need to know about what very well may become a career someday!
