The Urban Beehive by Rowan Dunford

With the bee population dwindling around the globe, Auckland, New Zealand native Rowan Dunford, developed a product to bring beekeeping to urban environments. With bees being critical to the world’s food supply, creating products like the Urban Beehive could help stabilize the problem by easing the beekeeping process.

Dunford wanted to eliminate any fears that might come with starting your own hive, like cost and complexity. Perfect for the beginner, the modern hive is simple and designed for flat-pack shipping and assembly.

You can easily stack multiple hives to build your very own colony.

Currently the design is in development and testing but we hope to see it on the market one day soon!
