Top Bar Bee Hives

My bee yard


Coffee with the bees on a Saturday Morning

Week six worker brood, drone brood


I attended my first Indiana State Beekeepers bee school in 2016 after several years of serious interest in keeping bees.

I decided that a TopBar Hive would work best for me because there is less heavy lifting of honey supers and I don't need to harvest the maximum amount of honey.

There has definitely been a learning curve, especially with how to best protect the hives over winter. I'm looking forward to the summer and ovserving the hives.

I recently added a second hive.
