Item Information

A new kind of beehive - our innovative Honey Jar Beehive allows the bees to store honey directly into mason jars, dramatically reducing the amount of work for the beekeeper, and reducing the stress on the colony. Watch your hive grow with the included Quick-Check Super, which allows you to easily view the activity and health of the colony from outside of the hive, without disturbing the hive or harming bees. Join the movement to save our honeybees.

SummerHawk Ranch Honey Jar Hive is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good idea Good idea, but roof structure will not hold up to Pacific northwest rain. Even though two coats of latex paint applied, rain found it's way into the roof panels and caused severe swelling and roof failure. I had to build flat, telescoping, covers, like traditional Lanstroth hives. SummerHawkranch would not honor their 3Year full warranty, as stated on carton.

How do you care for the bees in the winter?

Asked by: Minusone
The winter care needed can vary depending on your location and climate. We would recommend searching your local area for beekeepers recommendations on hive ventilation for your area. Below is a link to our Getting Started page. This page has references to help you locate a local beekeeping association where you may be able to find a mentor and also order bees. If you have any further inquiries, please contact SummerHawk Ranch at

I understand the chambers are pre-waxed. Is it natural wax? Is there any plastic? Is the bottom section considered a brood box or a super?

Asked by: jane13
These are pre-waxed with all natural beeswax, the foundations are plastic, and the bottom box is the brood box. If you have any further inquiries, please contact SummerHawk Ranch at

I’m assuming you would need full gear to retrieve your jars of honey. Are there instructions for harvesting?

Asked by: Acooper188
We recommend enjoying the wax and honey together, straight out of the container! However, if you would like to remove the wax, you can use any number of traditional straining techniques. Our favorite is to break up the wax and honey with a knife, then set the jars in a crock pot full of water at a constant 118 degrees F for about a half hour. This temperature should be low enough to keep the honey raw, and is low enough that the wax shouldn’t melt, but is warm enough to make the honey runny. Then, you just pour the warmed wax and honey through a regular strainer to separate the wax and honey and you have raw filtered honey!
