Top Bar Hive

The Top Bar Hive is one of our favourite hives, as it offers many advantages both for bees and humans. Easy to build, its design allows the hive to expand horizontally. The combs have a trapezoidal shape. It is possible to add frames and optionally extract honeycombs from the sides without unsealing the preciously-balanced inner atmosphere of the nest area, thereby reducing disturbance when the hive is opened.

The Top Bar Hives that we use are featured with observation window and listening holes, inviting intimacy and safe contact. If you would like to receive support to install a companion-hive on your land, click here (In Portugal only).
