8 bar NUC box similar to above but with round entrance and round metal entrance closure/ reducer/ vent $50.

I’ll meet you at Pleasant View Mercantile on 491 to show my hives.
Contact me at or 970-560-4385 Please be patient we live off grid and the phone service sometimes gives us the voice mail a day late without ever giving us the call.


I make hives with approximately 120 degree floor to side angles, side slot entrances with a landing porch, and a rear opening with a metal entrance reducer/vent/closure. They have insulated telescoping covers, with metal roofing, and an air gap between the cover and the bars. Bars are 19 inches long and have a waxed slat. The outsides are painted.

30 bar hives come with all bars, a feeder base (uses 2 of your mason jars), and a divider board.

Basic: $155 With observation port: $180

NUC box, as above, with 8 bars and metal closure/reducer/vent: $50

Knock apart single hive stand: $25

Contact us at or 970-560-4385 We are off the grid and our phone service is spotty, please leave a voice mail. We will meet you at the Pleasant View Mercantile to show our hives.
