    Is it possible to self study to get up to par if we missed the first session and would like to attend this one? If so, please state the overview of lessons.... (101a and b?) If not, will look out for repeat sessions. Thanks.

    Why is a top bar hive better?

      PERHAPS THIS MAY OFFER AN IDEA A top-bar hive has bars from which the honey bees attach and hang wax comb, an array of hexagonal (six sided) cells. Unlike the full four-sided frames used in a Langstroth hive, the comb on bars cannot be centrifuged to extract honey and then reused. This characteristic might lead to a lower production of honey, but the honey from clear yellow comb (comb that has not been used for brood) is of the highest quality and can be used as in-comb honey product, highly prized by some users in preference to liquid honey. This may be spread on hot toast, melting the wax, or may be chewed as a treat, releasing the honey.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
