Natural Beekeeping

Top Bar ApiRevolution has begun! Lets make some inexpensive Top Bar Hives and let them be pesticide free on their own natural comb! Che Guebee is a rebel bee fighting for the survival of the Biodiversity we all depend on and which is seriously endangered by deforestation and mono-crop agriculture! What kind of teaching have you got if you exclude nature?

My first ever honey harvest

My ladies gave me a small present yesterday :) I'm so happy and grateful for it!
Last year I did not harvest any honey in top bar hives because of the extremely rainy summer but this year is entirely different and the honey flow is strong. Not just that but this locality is so rich in flora which is in constant continuum.
I only took one comb out and simply did crush'n'strain making sure to squeeze out the pollen.
 Top Bar Virgin Honey with Pollen from Che Guebee Apiary
Pollen is lighter than honey and floats up to the surface 
The honey has a strong taste :) and the pollen is just speacial


  1. Mmmm looks yummy. Keep some for me :-).

  2. Wow, that looks awesome! I had no idea that the pollen would float to the top like that. Even though I have always bought local raw honey, I'm now starting to wonder what I've actually been getting all these years.

    1. Such honey cost much more because of the pollen and is not often sold. Most honey combs do not have pollen in them so the honey you bought is ok :)
