The seller is The Beehive
They are local to me (45minute drive)
He is a commercial beek that has a honey house storefront. He dabbles in retail honey, equipment, etc.
I got started by buying some used equipment from him to set up 2 hives. He charged me 20 per box. Loaded.
So for 80 bucks I got 2 deeps, 2 mediums, frames for everything, 2 top covers (migratory) and 2 bottom boards.
So far, everything except the smoker that I bought was the cheapest thing around. I paid 40 for a Dadant large smoker.... I could have gotten an off brand for 25. In talking to him he says he can offer me good deals like this due to the fact he buys in huge quantities. He knows what he can charge for it, but would rather keep his margins low and see another beek sprout and take off.
Hes good folk in my views.
Thanks for the help.
