Group Description

Welcome to
Top Bar Hives
an International discussion list



The subject for this discussion list is the construction and management of Top Bar Hives and other alternative hive types for beekeeping. The idea is to promote easy, affordable beekeeping, and a set of tools to help with that.



The only reason membership is restricted, is that we try to keep spammers at bay and reserve the right to expel troublemakers from the list.



Some good TBH ressources are:


At The Barefoot Beekeeper, you will find real good plans, describing How To Build A Top Bar Hive



John Satterfield's site about TBH beekeeping



John's Beekeeping Notebook, Top Bar Hive Beekeeping



"California style" TBH's



Conrad Bérubé's beekeeping-related articles
- many interesting videos as well.



The Appropriate Beehive - Topbar Beekeeping



Bee Natural, TBH




If you are looking for information about Warré hives (also highly recommended), there's a list dedicated to the subject at http://uk.groups.yahoo.com/group/warrebeekeeping/
