Wax Conversion

The beeswax conversion system provides a lb. per lb. exchange of crude wax into refined foundation. The beekeeper pays for this on a lb. rate to which we add a wiring charge if necessary.

We also provide a straight swap - the beekeeper provides the wax and we swap it for Premier Foundation, wired or unwired. No cash exchanges hands.

Most beekeepers bring the wax into one of our four stores, however we will also 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.
