I know, winter is just barely here and you’re thinking about spring. I’ve bet you’ve thought of bees before, but didn’t know where to start.
If you’re handy with a few hand tools, then check out The Great Alaskan Top Bar Beehive Plans. Just $10, step-by-step details for the novice to the expert, easily built with a few simple tools and about $70 in wood and fasteners, and finish. What do you get? Buckets of honey and an improved flower and vegetable garden, and environment. Plus, it’s a beautiful addition to your gardens. A great project for the kids, or youth groups.
“These are plans for building an unbelievably nice Top Bar Beehive. This is a hive that is easy to remove from its stand and has an access window for watching them work. That’s right, you can open the window access without disturbing them. You will not get just honey, you will have the actual honey combs. It will hold up to 30 combs. This hive has a very strong stand and it is removable. This makes it easy to move for storage or wintering over your bees.
These hives are VERY COOL !!! They are also very good looking. You too can have fresh honey and lots of it. You can make these in a single weekend and you will be proud of what have built.
—- WARNING —- When others see them, they will want you to build more for them !!!!”

Where do you get your bees? Steve Victors right here in Big Lake, Alaska.
Steve’s bees are of a very mild temperament, I usually don’t wear gloves or my beekeeper hat and suit. They find their own food, and really only need a checkup once a week. Otherwise they are busy bees. The Top Bar beehive is the natural way for bees to live. I have been using them for over 4 years. Plus there’s no bending or stooping!
I will post more on this later. Until then, think spring!
