The club apiary has around 150 brand new medium depth plasticell frames (coated with beeswax) for sale for $2 apiece. This is the price we paid for them. They are assembled and around 130 of them are still wrapped up in plastic in groups of five frames each. Twenty more are currently in supers, but are brand-new. The money from the frames will be used to purchase new, foundationless frames for the club apiary for our tradtional Langstroth hives. Please contact Caroline Abbott through the "contact us" form on the website, if you are interested in buying any of these frames.
Join us throughout the summer for field days at the club apiary.
