Last night I had the privilege of being asked to present top bar hives to the local beekeeper's club. I showed an Kenyon that I have waiting for package bees. Got a lot of keen questions from beginners to commercial bee people. It was exhilarating to see so much interest in alternate approaches to beekeeping. The main selling point seems to be the lack of need to lift heavy supers all the time. Is this similar to the experience of others?
