Got my very own top bar hive ready to go now, just in time for any swarm that may come my way. Have had these made for the shop / website.
I've heard a few beekeepers' opinions on this style of hive and method of beekeeping and I'm really keen to get personal experience of how they work in practice, I'm sure its going to be an experience!
These hives are not aimed at major honey production like a National or WBC hive, but are a simple, bee friendly and low cost way of keeping bees.
In an ideal world everyone would have one of these in their back garden, enjoy a small honey crop, and help look after our bee population.
Watch this space for our progress!
