Welcome to our backyard and our adventure into beekeeping with Top Bar Hives in Colorado. We share real-life happenings not just theory, and we hope this blog is helpful to you in your very own TBH adventure. — HB
A little bit of sweetness from Aurora, Colorado. So very proud of the Backyard Bees!
If we move to LA, HoneyLove.org is the beekeeping club we'll join. They're a 501(c)(3) that is very active in their community with a focused effort on legalizing urban beekeeping in LA. It surprised me that they'd accept a submission from Colorado, but the bigger surprise was that the Backyard Bees won first place! There were 18 honeys in the field from around the world, and our Linden-informed honey came out on top. Here are the details of the competition.
