IT'S A BIRD!  IT'S A PLANE!  NO, IT'S A BEE!  AND IT'S LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO CALL HOME!

Quality, Value, and Lasting Enjoyment.

 

Here at Ozark Cedar Hives we strive to bring you products that are long-lasting, attractive, and nature-friendly. We pride ourselves on using quality, local Ozark cedar that brings out the highest finished products for your backyard or apiary. We hope you enjoy using these products as much as we enjoy making them and then seeing satisfied customers having fun with them.


Ozark Cedar Hives is a family owned company, native to Missouri.​

​

Kathy and I were raised on farms and farmed many years ourselves.  We are very proud of our nation and its ingenuity and hard work ethics.  Agriculture and the awesome beauty of the outdoors has always been a way of life for us.  

 

From 1990 to 2010, Kathy and I served with World Gospel Mission in Honduras, Central America.  Even though we are still closely communicating with our great friends and coworkers in Honduras we have moved back to Missouri. 

We feel blessed and privileged to be responsible stewards of the resources our Creator has provided.  Whether raising crops, livestock, honey bees or creating beautiful cedar beehives, we strive to preserve and enhance those important resources as well as be a blessing to those who benefit from their use. 

Our motto in life has always been to pass on to others what we touch, giving it in better condition than before we came along.  This applies not only to natural resources, but more importantly, to the lives we are privledged to embrace.
