jumbo or extra-large hive bodies - source?
I have standardized on all medium hive bodies in my 10 hive backyard apiary. That is, 3 mediums for the brood chamber, and all mediums for the honey supers. One size for everything is nice. But, just for fun, I would like to try running a brood chamber larger than the standard deep.
I know Dadant used to sell a "Jumbo" size hive body. I don't see that size in their current catalog, though.
Anyone know a source for extra-large hive bodies, frames and foundation?
