Hello All!

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!
