We at Jacob Springs Farm have for many years served the local beekeeping community by bringing in and distributing bees from our beekeeping friends in Northern Wyoming. Together with capturing honeybee swarms and splitting honeybee colonies, package bees are a great way to start new colonies.

If you need a topbar beehive for your bees - we make and sell a few different kinds or you can download plans for the Open Source Beehive project with more plans to be posted soon.
