I am an urban beekeeper from the Antipodes, passionate about keeping bees for pollination and to add to the general world population. I try to do things as natural as possible with my latest love being my first TopBar hive ! I would love to meet other TBH fans !

Glad to have you! I love to hear from beekeepers from faraway. Of course, some from here will tell you I am from faraway :D . I may start me a TBH one day and would appreciate your advice.

hi there and welcome aboard! like G3 said, don't be shy around us. :hi: :wave:

I've heard much about and like the idea of tbh hives, but never really shown interest in them. I might have to check them out some day tho.

woa that sounds like a mouthful Charles?

New Zealand is one of those place I have always wanted to visit. I guess it is something like the effect of a swarm trap lure. Old beekeepers talk about this or that place and other beekeepers, like myself, have just got to go take a look see.

anyway, welcome aboard Kia.

Welcome! I have always wanted to visit NZ. Glaciers and rain forests within a day's drive of each other! How wonderful!

Do you think you will be able to harvest Manuka honey?

Iddee... in my opinion, the TBH could be considered more "natural" than a Langstroth with foundation.

is it some form of native dialect charles... like the name tecumseh?
I was curious about "Kia Ora" so a quick google search lead me here which told me it was the M?ori language

That page, in turn, lead me here where I found the greeting.

I thought if would be a nice welcome :)
