I am new to top bar hive beekeeping. I have read a lot about the sustainability of beekeeping. I wanted a top bar hive in order to give my bees a more natural, less demanding, healthier  existence.

Prior to settling on this particular hive I did a lot of reading and video watching about the ideal characteristics of a top bar hive, size, shape, materials etc. The advise on topbarhives web site in relation to construction fits perfectly with everything I have read. I opted for no viewing window but the open mesh floor as an optional extra.

Now that I have the hive it is everything I expected. Beautifully made, great materials, warm thicker walls, ideal size and shape. Very impressed.

In addition Andrew at topbarhives is really knowledgeable and helpful. Communication was great throughout the build and he made delivery simple.

All I can say is thank you. Very pleased.

I ordered 2 Top Bar Hives from Andrew and both the workmanship and service has been first class. The attention to detail and use of quality materials ensures that the hives were of the highest quality.

I am extremely impressed with both hives and would not hesitate in recommending the product.
