I am a new beekeeper, I bought plans and have built 2 top bar Backyard Hives. Great hives, but from what I have been reading they seem to be too small. The dimensions are 36 inches in length, the top width is 12.5 inches and bottom width is 8.5 inches with a depth of 9 inches. My concern is not an abundance of honey, just enough for me, family and friends. I just want to keep healthy hives. Any input is appreciated.
