Beekeeping in France in the late 19th Century was on the decline and a beekeeper called Abbe Emile Warre (1867-1951) was convinced that a more simple and economic way of beekeeping was possible.

After many trials with a variety of hives he designed his own, the Warre Hive (also known as the Ruche Populaire or ‘Peoples Hive’).

Made from English Cedar, each hive comprises

  • A floor with splayed legs and integral varroa screen and drawer.
  • Four brood bodies, each with eight plain top bars
  • A ventilated roof
  • A deep quilt with hessian cover and woodshaving insulation
  • A plain canvas quilt
