looking to buy 10 hives
I am looking to purchase 10 new complete hives around Febuary. I am looking for the following
2 deep supers
2 shallow supers
inner top cover
outer top cover
I am looking for the best deal i can find for this. Can any one make offers or point me towards companies with good deals. I live in Massachusetts and the closer the better. I will drive to pick up if within 150-200 miles or so.
Ck with northernqueens.com He had some earlier this year. Tony

looking for hives
I would be interested in frames but shipping is out of sight.last orders from western bee was 131.00 0n just 200 hundred frames ( ouch)
buy the time you get done with shipping and the rest you might just be better off going with lagrants up in Ware, Mass.
they'll have everything you need and be able to answer any questions if your new to the hobby.
I have quite a bit of used equipment if you are interested. Many boxes and frames. I am interested in converting to long hives and top bar hives exclusively, so I will no longer be in need of the traditional equipment. Please call or email me if interested. Then I can do an inventory. I did have 8 hives at one point, with equipment left over. pollen traps as well. I am located in North Salem, NY (Mapquest says I live 94.4 miles from Springfield, Mass.)
You would have to move a little quickly, though, because I leave for Florida after Christmas and do not return until the middle of march.
If you are interested in new equipment, I will take a look at pricing on building all of the woodenware for you. It's a bit of a hobby of mine. I can build all of the supers, the bottom boards, the inner covers, and the outer covers without a problem.
Not to jump this post, but I'm looking for some hives as well. I'm in Farmington NM. If anyone has contacts here or know where I can buy hives, please let know. Email address is email@example.com

Frank LaGrants internet address has changed.
I will say I bought my first equipment from Frank 25 years ago, It was the best equipment I ever bought, most of it still in service, he makes it all himself and the advice you will get and the questions that he will answer are well worth the price. Does anyone know if he still sells queens? thanks
He had sold his queen rearing operation after getting lyme disease but the person he sold it to doesn't live far and Frank still uses the same queens in his nucs.
