When you rent a hive from us, we take care of all the work

Introductory Visit

We will first come around to introduce ourselves, inspect the site, and help you decide which options are best suited for you.


Beehive Delivery

We deliver your bees in their fancy new home built from NZ pine and designed to fit into the natural environment of your backyard.

Meet Your Bees

We will arrange for you and your family to meet your new tenants, look inside the hive, learn about the bees and ask any questions you might have. *This is an optional upgrade


Hive Maintenance

After this, we will visit around once a month to check on the hive and make sure your bees are healthy, well-fed and productive.

Reviews from our customers…
“We have noticed such a difference in our garden, we love seeing the beautiful hive and watching the bees buzzing around, the bees have definitely helped with pollination of our fruit trees and plant for this spring ”
“Lynn and I have hired a hive from Barna. It has been a great experience for us. We love watching the activity around the hive and knowing we are doing our bit for the bees and our backyard. Anytime we have had questions or concerns Barna has come back to us straight away. We would highly recommend Barna to you and would be happy to show you our hive if you want to see one in action!”
“The work is done for us and we don’t have to worry that we’re messing things up. Bees are important and also hard to look after.”

“The hive is attractive in my garden, Barna is easy to deal with and having the visits adds a cool dynamic to our house”
