The 8 FrameGarden Hive Kit (Unassembled) is comprised of only medium boxes with a beautiful top. The 8 Frame medium hive is gaining popularity with many beekeepers because of its ease of manipulation, standardization of equipment, and increased success. In his book, The Backyard Beekeeper, Kim Flottum describes the 8 Frame Medium hive as the “hive of the future”. With only one size super, frame, and foundation your beekeeping is greatly simplified. The first time you have to lift a full super you will never regret having switched to 8 Frame Medium hives. Our beautiful A-line Garden Top will enhance any setting in which it is placed.
