  1. Its nice to see people from all over trying out the foundation-less approach especially in Eastern Canada, I’m fortunate enough to live a little west of that (eastern Ontario), the people at Backwards beekeepers really have something, I like seeing more individuals keeping bees rather then a few mega farms keeping thousands. I’m using Top Bar Hives but the sentiment is the same, keeping it natural!

  2. Hey Sam,

    Your comment got filtered out as SPAM for some reason. I’m just reading it now, and it looks like I’m responding to it a big way. Instead of leaving a long comment, I’ll upload my response as a regular post within the next day or two. Thanks.
