Wax Straight Swap

Swap your crude beeswax for fresh premier foundation sheets. Nothing to pay, and receive the best quality foundation in exchange. We always round up to the nearest sheet.

No Cash Straight Swap. You give us the beeswax - we give you the foundation.

The tables below show exactly (to the nearest quarter of a sheet) how many sheets per pound we swap.

For example, you have 10lbs of beeswax to "straight swap". You will use the top table. You want some BS Deep Wired and some Section Squares. You can decide: maybe 4lbs BS Deep Wired (that will give you 15 sheets), which leaves 6lbs for Section Squares (263 sheets).
We work out to the nearest sheet and always round up. Your wallet stays closed!!

Most beekeepers bring the wax into one of our five stores but we do accept wax through the post. We also offer this wax exchange service at The Irish Convention, the Welsh Spring Convention, the BBKA Spring Convention and the National Honey Show.
