Sun Hives are a hive design coming out of Germany and now gathering interest in Britain. They’re part of the world-wide movement towards ‘apicentric’ beekeeping – beekeeping that prioritizes honeybees firstly as pollinators, with honey production being a secondary goal.  The Sun Hive is modeled in part on the traditional European skep hive, and is aimed at creating a hive that maximises colony health.
