This year I was able to capture four swarms for myself, which I have hived in three large Top Bar Hives up on the farm. On top of that, I had opportunity to capture several other swarms which we placed with some aspiring new beekeepers - nice to get some other folks into the work of caring for bees! My hope is that the hives will all be strong enough to weather the winter and will start next spring strong. I will be able to split those colonies next year and continue to expand the apiary.
