Welcome to Legacy Apiaries
We build and assemble superior quality beehives out of the finest Western Red Cedar available. The high quality materials that we use to hand construct our cedar beehives make our products last for decades. Our hives are not made in a factory or on an assembly line, therefore our great efforts go to building high quality constructions and we pride ourselves on every piece of beekeeping equipment that we create. The beehives for sale are all handmade and they are the most elegant and unique Western Red Cedar beehives, available in a variety of beautiful shades! We can guarantee our clients that every hive we send out will last for years to come!
As we build our cedar beehive construction business, we also plan to slowly produce the utmost organic, fresh and unprocessed honey available. Our bees are not treated with chemicals, instead we use natural techniques, such as essential oils to help maintain a natural balance within our hives and keep diseases and pests at bay.
At Legacy Apiaries, we strive to help create a stronger community, educate individuals, develop environmentally friendly business practices, as well as help reverse the dramatic decrease in honeybee populations. Our dedication to customers will be focused around building strong personal relationships while providing top quality beekeeping equipment.
Our commitment to the environment and to our clients will always be our top priority and will be done so in an honest, responsible and respectable manner.
Note from the founders:
We are just sick of the status of our environment and the direction it has taken for future generations. We set out to start this business so that we can prove ourselves and to others that you can create businesses with a positive impact on the world around us. We want to pass on to our children the preciousness that is our environment and the great importance of beekeeping within it. When we are able to pass on our Legacy to future generations, we will know our short time on this Earth was well spent. We are extremely grateful to our friends and family for the support they offered to our hopes and dreams.
