Dadant Blatt and Zander
At our honey bee farm, we have been breeding bee families using different beehive systems. As already mentioned, we sell families with three frames with a brood, one frame with food, and one frame with a honeycomb base. When packing families, care is taken to choose frames with covered brood. This prevents the brood from being exposed to cold during transport and ensures that bees hatch quickly and developed into full and strong colonies. In this way, we do not interrupt the developmental cycle of the bee family.
Dadant Blatt s characterised by large frames, and thus has a larger area for the brood, greater volume of the brooding box and reduced swarming chance. Because of Dadant Blatt’s larger frames, one brood box stack with ten frames is sufficient, which means that we use less frames and can easily and quickly check the bee family.
Large brood box volume
Lower frame use in the brood box
Reduced swarming inclination
Increased honey production
Simple management of bee family
Zander frames are slightly smaller and lighter, making them more convenient and manageable. Most beekeepers use two brood box stack, which means that the number of frames in this case allows more precise work and easier distribution of frames in the brood box. One advantage of Zander hives is that the frames in the brood box are the same size as the frames in the honey box, which allows us to move the frames between the brood box and the honey box, and to manage frames more rationally.

Option to enlarge the brood box by adding stacks
Bee families are packed in boxes designed for safe and bee-friendly transport. They are made from strong cardboard and Styrodur. Ventilation is provided by a mesh at the bottom and top of the box. We are very careful when packing bee families. With our many years of experience in transporting bees, we make sure that bee families arrive at their destination safe and healthy.
The queen bee is the soul of the bee family
A quality queen bee is crucial for the strength and productivity of the bee family. Our families for sale include an economical queen from our own breeding stock. We have been breeding Apis mellifera carnica queens for many years. We are an approved queen bee breeding farm by the renowned bee breeders’ organisation of the Slovenian Beekeepers’ Association and the Agricultural Institute of Slovenia.
