Ruhl Bee Supply has been supporting beekeepers of the Northwest for 117 years, and we're committed to helping our customers succeed, be they hobbyists or seasoned commercial apiarists.
We provide everything a beekeeper needs to keep healthy and productive bees,
including beehives, clothing, tools, educational material, medication, food, supplements, and honey
For many of our customers, beekeeping is about more than a resource for homegrown honey to share with family and friends. It is a means to engage with the natural world in a tremendously
rewarding way. Watching these industrious and gentle creatures establish their hive is both relaxing and
Our highly experienced staff works hard to stay well informed on beekeeping.
We review all the texts we provide, we're active in the beekeeping community and we subscribe to and follow all the major bee journals. We provide diverse beekeeping
classes and are glad to help you through the entire process from setting up a couple of backyard honeybee
hives to running hives for your own crop pollination.
We're a small business with customers around the world and an ever-expanding inventory of diverse products. But the most important thing to us is making sure our customers get the support and equipment they need.
We'd like to invite you to bookmark our Beekeeper's Almanac page for seasonal beekeeping advice, and to follow us on Twitter and Facebook: www.facebook.com/ruhlbeesupply for up-to-the-moment announcements, tips and events. And of course, we hope you'll take some time to browse our online store, and get in touch with us if there's something you need but don't see. If we don't have it on our shelves, we can probably get it for you!
We encourage "will call" orders for our local beekeepers so your order will be ready when you come by, and our
shipping prices are very competitive to keep things neighborly with
those of you across the continent.
Are you in the Portland, Oregon area? Come visit our store in Gladstone! During the winter, we've always got a nice fire going in our woodstove, and during our beekeeping season, you'll always find somebody to "talk bees" with--even if we're busy putting together your order.
Thanks for stopping by our online store! We look forward to doing business with you, and wish you a fantastic beekeeping season!
