Bee Houses for the Modern Bee & Its Keeper

Have you thought about keeping bees?  We have been searching for a solution that will fit with the aesthetic of our farm.  Here are a few we are thinking about.  Please share any modern bee houses you’ve found.

We found this gorgeous bee house (above) called te Mason Bee House, curated by Svpply on Amazon.

We are big fans of Omlet, a modern manufacturer in the UK of urban farming goods such as chicken coops, bee houses, small animal hutches and worm composters.  We love the simplicity of the design and how functional each component.  We particularly like the fact that it’s triple insulated, which keeps your bees cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

The new Agrarian Collection by Williams-Sonoma is also really lovely. Not only are they offering this beehouse, but also all the equipment and goods you need to get started. Check out the starter kit below.  All you need to do is add bees and you’re ready to go!

This set includes:

  • Beehive (3 boxes with 8 frames each, and a stand).
  • Helmet with veil.
  • Large gloves.
  • Hive tool.
  • Bee brush.
  • Smoker.
  • Entrance feeder.

Sow, what do you think?
