We made a bunch for a bee class I taught awhile back. Some of them have been lightly used, some are still pretty clean and doesn't look like I got them out at all.
I am keeping one top bar hive going on our farm but want to have the rest of our bees in a variety of hive types. This works better for me since I teach monthly bee classes. This way I can show people what each of them are like during the class.
I don't need as many TBHs now so I'm open to selling ($100) or bartering them.
The class is not Beekeeping 101. Instead I teach about the nature of bees, what makes them healthy and strong and how to work with the bees to encourage that. It's a class I suggest people take BEFORE they keep bees. Too often I've seen people take a beekeeping class and jump in but they don't have any knowledge yet about what makes hives strong. Then they have to rely on opinions, often of people who don't question what they've been taught or told. I want to encourage people to keep asking themselves, "What do bees want?" and work from that perspective.
