Slovenian Style (AZ) Hives
We also run six AZ (Slovenian) hives (both 2 level and 3 level) in a small bee shed. We began exploring this type of hive years ago as an alternative to the Langstroth hive that would require less lifting for honey production yet be suitable of the weather conditions in our region. We use these hives primarily for our honey production. They will also be the hives that we have as we age and can no longer maintain traditional Langstroth hives.
