Complete Drebbieville Hive

Alternative Views:

AZ Hives come from Slovenia and are a strong alternative to the common Langstroth hives. With a Langstroth hive, the beekeeper must lift heavy boxes in order to get their work done. For some of us this lifting just isnʼt possible. Some experienced beekeepers find themselves having to quit their hobby for physical reasons and new beekeepers are deterred from the activity all together -- all because of these heavy boxes!

The Drebbieville is the first American produced AZ hive with accessible
frames from the rear like a dollhouse, modified to familiar Langstroth dimensions. The Drebbieville hive eliminates
the heavy work of beekeeping!
Price: $550.00

5 of 5 Amazing Hives March 21, 2023
Reviewer: Marshall Sims from Jonesboro, GA United States  
We took delivery of our hives this spring and could not be happier. The hives are beautiful and we were blown away by the incredibly solid construction. Set up was a breeze and we have loved checking on our bees with through the rear screen. It really is a much more rewarding way to keep bees. We can't recommend it enough.

5 of 5 The Best Hive EVER! February 4, 2019
Reviewer: Cindi Benton from Starke, FL United States  
So much easier to use, holds more bees, which means it will hold more honey :)  Makes a lot more sense, as well. Well constructed. VERY PLEASED all the way around.  Waiting to order the 2nd and 3rd hives now... let me know when I can! :)

5 of 5 AZ Hives July 26, 2018
Reviewer: Roy Stark from Kirbyville, TX United States  
The quality of the Drebbieville hives is excellent! I am in southeast Texas. Going to order more so I don't have to lift anymore heavy boxes. To say I am impressed is an understatement!

5 of 5 A pleasure to keep in May 26, 2017
Reviewer: Ian Corey  
I bought this hive in 2015. Great experience keeping in it. I prefer it over a Langstroth where I would be lifting boxes and rolling bees while pulling frames. I can sit out of the hot sun and manage the hive while the colony goes about its business.
I'm very enthusiastic about the future of these types of hives in this country.
