Building the bee hives!

We are starting out with two bee hives this year and are going to add two or more per year.
 
We also decided to go with the Top Bar style hives as they are more natural.  One down side to these kinds of hives is that the yield of honey is less.  However, the bees tend to be a lot happier and they have a greater chance of survival from disease, weather and more. Most important is that they pollinate our crops!
