    Hello and welcome -

    If you haven't found these already, here are some good sites for info on top bar hives:

    As for learning more, I also recommend getting involved with a local beekeeping club. Clubs are good places to find mentors and get connected to nearby beekeepers:

    Welcome, you can always buy your first bees by the pound and generate swarms or splits.
