Bee hives provide beeswax and honey, and also help crops grow faster in a radius of 13 tiles. A beehive can hold a maximum of 1 L honey.


Each bee hive will pollinate "one field tile per however many ticks"; the pollination range is shown when you build the hive. A tile is either pollinated, or it is not; multiple bee hives do not increase the pollination bonus.

To put it another way:

  • If you have 1 crop tile and no hives, your grow speed is SLOW;
  • if you have 1 crop tile and 1 hive, your grow speed is FAST;
  • if you have 1 crop tile and 2 hives, your grow speed is FAST, same as 1 and 1 (but only one of the hives gains honey from the pollination);
  • if you have 10 crop tiles and 1 hive, your grow speed is slightly slower than 10 crop tiles and 10 hives.

How to AcquireEdit

Build > Bee Hive


To collect beeswax, just right click the hive and harvest it. To collect honey, left click a bucket and right click on the hive.

The bee hive production is affected by maturing plants in its vicinity. Every time a plant is planted or grows, the hive has a chance of producing honey and/or wax. Therefore, if you want a lot of wax or honey, you have to actively farm around the bee hive. The quality of the products is related to the flower quality, and capped by the hive quality.
