One idea is to get a dog. That will cover a few bases - walking, exercise and love of dogs!
I'd also like to encourage others into Natural Beekeeping. One obstacle I've heard from a few people is that they cannot build a top-bar hive. Whether it's a lack of time, tools or ability is irrelevant. I enjoy building hive, so topbarbeehive.co.uk is the result. This is certainly not a get rich plan: just compare prices on the internet! I aim to cover my expenses (I hope!) and have a little beer money left over.
The intention is to build the hive that you want, not have a "one size fits all" hive. I'm happy to discuss what you want, what the bees need and what I can do. I will not be cutting any wood until I have an order, so the result should be completely to the specification that we agree.
