With a simple frame, this adaption of a drum makes a cheap way to build a hive which is surprisingly easy to manage.



The Honey Cow is designed to mimic nature as much as possible. Unlike commercial hives, it does not have frames, foundation or excluders. Instead, it just has top bars, allowing the bees to do what they would in a fallen log: build beautiful, natural combs. Because it is less intrusive to the bees, it’s easier to make and manage, which makes it a perfect beginners backyard hive.
