The Kenyan Top Bar Hive

Beekeeping Naturally promotes the Kenyan Top Bar Hive as one of the most effective natural bee hives for backyard and small-scale Beekeepers (Bee-carers).

Entering the beehive from one side means that only a small number of bees are disturbed at a time, rather than thousands of angry bees reacting to just having their roof ripped off.  A smoker to confuse the bees is rarely used and delicious raw honey can be taken out one bar at a time as needed.

No more bending and lifting heavy bee boxes. The Kenyan Top Bar hive is great for people in wheel chairs and very easy for elderly people.

When I show this Kenyan Top Bar hive method to experienced conventional beekeepers, they can’t believe how simple it is and how relaxed the bees are.
