Matt Reed is the owner of Bee Thinking, a sustainable beekeeping supply store for backyard beekeepers located in SE Portland. Bee Thinking was founded in 2008 as an internet resource for beekeepers throughout the world. At the same time he began mass-producing foundationless Top Bar and Warre hives for his own apiary. Soon he had a great deal of interest from many people who were getting involved in foundationless beekeeping, so he began selling the same hives that he uses to those in the beekeeping community. Today, he sells these hives to people all over the world.

Matt's philosophy is simple. The chief end of beekeeping should be to provide the bees with the ideal environment in which to thrive. To do this, the beekeeper must engross his or her mind with a wide range of bee-related information detailing the bee life cycle, history, hive design, management and innumerable other topics of importance. Without this knowledge, it is unlikely that the bees or the keeper will have success in their endeavors.
