Topbar Beekeeping

I'm an urban topbar beekeeper in Albuquerque, NM. I manage hives in backyards and small organic farms within city limits. These hives are probably pollinating your veggie patches right now. Visit my website at:


New Motto

I was in Ruidoso, NM last weekend enjoying some Deschutes Brewery Beer and noticed the logo on the bottle- "Courageously Crafted Since 1988". I'm feeling my new beekeeping motto should be "Keeping Bees Courageously Since 2009," especially with all the stings I acquired last year and the numbers of hives I'm losing this winter. So sad, but expected with all the late year bee removals I did. They just didn't have enough time to build up honey for the winter.

On the drive down south I could tell I was in bee country because I kept seeing langstroth hive components scattered on the side of the highway. Totally weird sight. I'm imagining hives shooting out of the back of an out of control pickup truck....
