My name is Matt Mannell, and I started beekeeping in 2009 with a Top Bar hive. I now keep both Top Bars and 8-frame medium "Langstroth" style hives. My son Alfred helps me with the bees when I can convince him to.
I'm a tinkerer and inventor by nature, and I started this site to catalog some of my beekeeping DIY projects. Hope you enjoy it!
