Having your own top bar bee hive to produce honey is rewarding and exciting, but there is an even more essential reason to keep bees. As honeybees fly from flower to flower, collecting nectar and pollen for food, they are pollinating the flowers. The honeybee is not the only pollinator, but because of its nature and characteristics, it is one of the most effective. Pollination in vegetable gardens and orchards is essential because without bees for pollination, some fruits and vegetables will not set fruit. In our beekeeping classes, you will learn how to start and manage your top bar bee hives for both honey production and crop pollination.
