Good day. While researching The HoneyFlow hive and easier honey extracting methods, I kept bumping into the Mason Jar Hive. I kept dismissing it as a joke.
I did however find rave reviews of this hive system, and made me stop for a closer look. It is indeed so simple and brilliant, it is genius. If only it works, and you like comb honey. Which I’m not a big fan of. If it does work it can be a great addition alongside a HoneyFlow hive for comb honey and easy harvesting.
It is so simple you can easily make one without buying any extra expensive equipment.
The bees build honey comb direct into mason jars so harvesting is as easy as lifting the jar and screw in the lid. Slap a label and you have a product to sell or gift.
Does anyone here had a go at the mason jar hive and have some feedback? I am still sceptical and can see a lot of problems with this.
