We've been using recycled potato chatting trays for a while now and can't believe we didn't find them before!
Recycling these out-of-use/retired chitting trays is great for the environment and a natural way to raise your hives. Three stacked on top of each other is the perfect height for us (at about 6 foot), bringing the brood box to hip height. No more bending down and no more back ache!
Use one with a standard hive stand to raise off the floor and raise the height that little bit more whilst keeping the hive stable, or simply do away with the expensive hive stands and place the brood box directly onto three trays.
Limited quantity available.
Collection from our farm just outside of Market Deeping, 18 minutes from Peterborough, or you can arrange your own courier.
We don't, but you might want to run a preserving agent over them or wood-worm treatment.
