The joy of beekeeping has been known to delight people of all ages. Beekeeping is a surprisingly easy, hands on and satisfying hobby to be involved in. Besides the bees themselves, the only thing a beekeeper needs is a brave heart, a curious mind, and the contents of this Amish Made "Starter Kit".

This kit is easy to set up and comes preassembled. It contains 5 frames & foundations and is ready for 5 more when you buy your bees as a '5 Frame Nuc'. The kit also contains the protective gear, smoker, and hive tool you'll need to start your journey as a beekeeper.

For centuries, the Amish have prided themselves on creating quality made products out of high grade materials. These hives are no exception to this dedication. From beginning to end, these hives are American Made from American wood - the Eastern White Pines of Michigan and Pennsylvania.

These Amish made beehives are a labor of love. The hive bodies and honey supers have been painstakingly designed to hold together using tight fitting finger joints. Measured twice and cut once, every hive part uses the standard dimensions that fit all other 10 frame hives -- regardless of their brand.

Why Choose Busy Bees 'N' More Hives?

In the pursuit of discovering durably crafted Amish made beehives, Busy Bees ‘N’ More traveled the countryside of Ohio for just the right woodworkers.

Throughout American history the Amish have built their name to be akin to authentic artisanship. They’ve stood the test of time and passed on their genuine expertise from generation to generation. Now known for their high-quality woodwork, the Amish create meticulously crafted works of art.

In today’s marketplace, you’d be hard-pressed to find products that have the integrity, precision, and long-lasting value that the Amish provide. Instead, you’ll find the market has run rampant with cheap imported products that have been made to sell, not to be used.

These hives are made in the USA from Eastern White Pine that were once sourced for creating log cabins and housing the pioneers of America -- the Amish now use it to house your bees. Regionally and responsibly sourced from Michigan and Pennsylvania, we guarantee your new beehive’s lumber has been quality checked and will be a beautiful showpiece in your yard for years to come.

Shipping & Delivery

Our beehives leave the warehouse in mint condition. In transit wooden beehives can become damaged.

We ship out your beehives out during business hours -- we typically ship within 24 hours of when the order was placed. In some cases we do ship your product out on the same day you order it, but if not, you can expect it to be shipped on the following day.

Please note that if you are ordering an assembled product, this may take a little more time.

We use both FedEx and UPS to ship our products, whichever is faster. We ship from central Ohio and on average products take 1 to 4 days to reach your house.

We try our very best to get your beehives to you as fast as possible.

Depending on your order, at times our beehives can be too large to ship in just one package. For your convenience, we will split large orders into multiple boxes that are easy to carry and less accident prone.

Although all of your packages will have left our facility at the same time, please do not be surprised if they do not arrive at the same time. Shipping companies can sometimes be unpredictable, but rest assured your packages will be there soon. Please check your confirmation email for your tracking number(s).

Please order and assemble your hive well in advanced to the arrival of your bees so you know there will be no issues. Poor planning on your part does not render an emergency on ours.

To qualify for free shipping, you must purchase $50 or more in products and live within the continental United States. If your order doesn't quite hit the $50 mark, we have a number of low cost accessories that can be added to your order. As a benefit to you, we also give deep discounts for purchasing in quantities of 2+, 5+, or 10+ of a product so that you can easily meet the $50 minimum on free shipping.

If you wish to have beehives shipped to you out of the United States, then please contact us via email and we'll get you a rate quote.
