    Know of anyone getting out of beekeeping and wants to sell their stuff? Please let me know at if you know of someone looking to sell their hive and gear! I need pretty much everything.

    We’re moving into our new home (and land) near Mechanicsville in late April, so I can’t pick it up before that. I’m looking to purchase used hive equipment that is in good, disease-free condition. If the hive already has a colony of bees in it, that’s even better! I have a (very) small amount of beekeeping experience.

      I’m downsizing at my place in Cold Harbor, and have some hive equipment to sell. All in great shape, stored in our barn. Most of the hive boxes are mediums but I do have 3-4 large boxes as well. Already painted, ready to go. There’s a couple of screened entrance boards, a top, some entrance reducers, etc. Some other miscellaneous equipment too.
      Come over, take a look and see if any meets your needs.
