High-Quality beehive frames for sale.  Unassembled & assembled.

New Horizons, a not-for-profit social enterprise, manufactures high-quality beehive frames and employs a total of 38 intellectually disabled people as well as four staff.

New Horizons saw an opportunity to purchase the manufacturing equipment for making beehive frames from Hydes Creek Woodworks formerly located in Bellingen and the business was moved to the Coffs Harbour location in 2017.

The manufacturing process has been streamlined, and staff have been trained to turn out high-quality beekeeping woodenware for the beekeeping industry.

The owner of Mt. Coramba Apiculture, Glenn Locke recently visited the factory and was impressed with the high quality of the frames being turned out.

New Horizons can manufacture a wide range of beekeeping woodenware.

They specialise in Langstroth frames in the standard sizes:
