Rent a Hive Program:  $355.00/season (HST Included)

Ideal for people who want to try their hand at beekeeping but who are not permitted, or do not have room for a hive on their property. Specifically geared to people who live in urban areas.

- Rent a hive for one season. All tools and protective gear provided.
- Start with a single brood chamber and a nucleus colony.
- Build up hive to a double brood chamber before applying medium honey super.
