  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!
