I had estimated a harvest of about 100 pounds this fall… after todays inspection of two of the seven colonies, Im revising that to 180-200 pounds. These bees had a wonderful year. The new shop will be buzzing with extracting and bottling soon, as well as building more equipment for the 2023 season!

The barn has made hive building in the winter a pleasure! 25F outside, 55F indoors with this little propane heater.

Several, all used and abused.
30 degrees warmer is a significant improvement in temperature with just one heater for such a big space!!!!! I see some insulation in the walls, what did you do for the ceiling?
