Welcome to the form
I can understand why you are hopes lee lost in ME  LOL LOL
In my opinion this is one of the best places to buy woodware in New England
And yes it is in Maine the commercial grade is more than adequate

Welcome, Brian! Nope, winter is several months we have available for taking beekeeping classes and reading beekeeping books, not to mention counting the days til the dandelions bloom!

Thanks everyone!  Jim134 have you ever tried humble abodes budget grade boxes?  I am going to take a run up there soon and thought about picking some up.  I am using their commercial grade now.
