Top Bar Hive – A New Member In My Bee Family

There’s A New Member In The Family And It’s A Top Bar Hive

I spent all last week at the treatment free beekeeping conference in Leominster, MA. Every year it is hosted by Dean Stiglitz and Laurie Herboldsheimer of Golden Rule Honey.  I will be writing all about the conference this week but for now I wanted to share with you the best part of all.  Look what hitched a ride back home with me courtesy of Sam Comfort at Anarchy Apiaires. It’s a new top bar hive filled to the brim with Sam’s treatment free bees.

Check out the show they put on today for the rest of the hives in my apiary.  I think they were showing off just how cool they were.  What do you think?

This post was shared on the Homestead Barn Hop and Homestead Revival.
