Hand-built in Portland, Oregon by our team of craftspeople, our Wedge Langstroth Hive embodies the Bespoke name. Using manufacturing techniques developed to reduce waste, the Wedge Langstroth hive is the most environmentally friendly manufactured hive on the market today. We re-imagined and updated the classic Langstroth look and feel with a simple, clean aesthetic - a modern take on a classic hive.
NO NONSENSE BEEKEEPING.
Our hives are devoid of the gimmicks like windows and fancy joints competitors use to justify higher prices. Made solely with FSC-Certified, locally-sourced Sugar Pine, every component, every piece, every screw we put in our hives was designed to make it the most environmentally friendly hive on the market today.
For example, our unique Wedge Roof offers the weather resistance of a traditional outer cover, without using environmentally-taxing metals like aluminum, nor the needless waste and reduced utility of a peaked roof. Bespoke Bee Supply is one of the only suppliers to cut and build its hives and boxes 100% in house – no guesswork about build quality, here. Learn more about why design matters.
UNRIVALED BUILD QUALITY.
All boxes are made with custom rabbeted joints, which add strength while significantly reducing waste compared to finger or comb joints by eliminating the extra wood dust and needless offcuts other joints create. Plus, those finicky joints are more likely to reduce your hive’s durability when they swell and warp in winter. Besides the environmental and cost reasons to stick with the more reliable rabbeted joint, they’re really only there to impress the beekeeper; while they look pretty cool, the bees don’t care what the outside of the box looks like.
UNIVERSAL LANGSTROTH DIMENSIONS.
Untouched is the traditional Langstroth utility and universality. Have old mediums or deeps you want to reuse? No problem! Our designs fit with any Langstroth hive components you might have laying around.
Innovation by Design.
Instead of putting effort into designing gimmicks, like fancy joinery or ornamental windows that do very little for the bees or their keepers, we focus on the designs that matter. It’s time we change the way we think about beekeeping.
The Bespoke "Wedge" Langstroth Hive is a medium hive with a large capacity for honey, with beginner-friendly usability. We design all of our hive to be simple and functional with a modern aesthetic. Learn more about whydesign matters.

BEEKEEPING FOR GOOD.
We started Bespoke Bee Supply because we believe that hive makers can do better, can make better, can back their glossy marketing up with real difference-making changes. For the better.
It’s our belief that sustainability should be more than a marketing ploy. That’s why Bespoke Bee Supply builds environmental responsibility into every aspect of our business. Learn more about our environmental commitment.
Our hive conforms to standard Langstroth sizes, and therefore our components are interchangeable with other industry Langstroth hives.
