Why Warré?

These gorgeous Warré hives are part of a "natural bee-keeping" approach.  The Warré hive was designed by a French monk named Abbé Émile Warré. He wanted a hive that closely resembled what nature intended, requiring minimal interference from beekeepers.

Compared with conventional hives (e.g. Langstroth),  Warré hives make bees happier.

 

1. This design closely resembles how bees like to build hives in the wild, from the top down. 

 

2. This hive requires such low maintenance that the bees are hardly ever disturbed (maybe once or twice per year). This means they're able to get on with doing bee things and are more settled, and less defensive. 

 

3. The Warré hive has open frames. Conventional hives can have fake comb to kickstart the comb building process, but this puts bees out of work. The Warré open frame design lets all bees have jobs to help build the honeycombThis means everyone is gainfully employed and feeling happy and useful.

 

Happier bees mean fewer stings for you!

Good to know: 

 

Our Warré hives are custom-built in our Blue Mountains workshop from FSC certified Australian-grown pine.

 

We build our hives to last.  Other Warré hives out there on the market are poorly made imports from China. Beekeepers report they last just 2 years before they fall apart.  We build our hives with high-grade timber, secret pocket joints and safe non-toxic glue (FDA approved for indirect food contact) inside the construction to make sure our hives are top-quality and built to last.
