    We've got everything you need to reap the sweet rewards of keeping bees. With Harvest Lane Honey all-in-one hive kits and high quality beekeeping tools you can get started the minute you open the box.

    The easiest way to establish a hive is to purchase an all-in-one backyard beekeeping kit from Harvest Lane Honey. This should include everything you need to get started in making a comfortable home for bees. Additional expansion pieces and tools can be purchased as your experience and hive grow.

    Harvest Lane Honey manufactures high quality hives able to withstand weight and weather. Our hive boxes and frames are constructed from premium ¾” wood frames and protected with two coats of exterior paint. Our signature pitched metal Wasatch Top will improve the appearance and durability of your hive. A sliding screened bottom board will protect your colony from cold air in the winter.

    You will also need to purchase bees and you may need to register your hives. Learn the regulations and registration processes for your state.

    Once you have installed your bees in their brood box, they will start building a community. Your job is simple. Give them a comfortable home and give them some space. While they're getting settled, you don't want to check or feed them more than once a week. When you do inspect the hive and refill their feeder with high quality bee feed, be certain to use smoke to keep the bees calm and docile.

    Within two months your colony will be looking to expand. Add an additional brood box on top of the first at this point. This box will contain the honey stores the colony will need to make it through the winter. Remember to move the inside hive feeder to the second box to draw the bees up.

    When you notice white wax cappings on the honeycombs in the second brood box, add a queen excluder to keep the queen at home. Then add your first honey super. These medium sized boxes will hold your honey harvest. A healthy hive will start to fill the honey super in as little as two weeks! If you want to harvest more honey, simply add additional supers as they fill.

    Purchase proper clothing and tools to keep yourself safe while interacting with your bees. Stings may happen, but you can reduce them by suiting up and using a smoker to calm your bees every time you check your hive.

    Harvest Lane Honey recommends having the best tools of the trade. Frame grips, protective bee suits, a good smoker with pellets, and a supply of additional honey supers will make your beekeeping experience safe and seamless. Harvest Lane Honey sells only top quality tools recommended by experienced beekeepers. We have also compiled a list of equipment to make establishing your hive easy and fun.

    Before you begin the honey extraction, obtain the tools for the job. Refer to our instructional videos and equipment lists.

    Using frame grips, carefully remove the honeycombs and gently return the bees to the hive with a bee brush. You will want to move the combs away from the hive site and extract the honey in an enclosed area. The delicious scent of fresh honey will attract every bee in the neighborhood.

    Use an angle knife or scratcher to expose the honey within the cells. Then place the frames into an extractor to spin the honey out of the comb. Extractors are the fastest, easiest, and most efficient way to harvest the maximum amount of honey from the comb. As an added bonus, the comb remains intact and you can return it to the hive for the bees to refill without having to rebuild.

    Once the honey is extracted, it will pour through a metal sieve to ensure that it is free from impurities, and into a special honey bucket with a gate that makes it simple to fill and seal bottles with minimal mess.

    It's just that easy to enjoy the rewards of fresh, organic, home-crafted honey!
