Q: How do you feed a top bar hive in winter?
A: With a Fondant Feeder!
This winter-only feeder acts just like a fake honeycomb, making fondant (hard sugar candy) accessible to your bees in winter - when they cannot break cluster.
Just need the fondant recipe?

One of these arrived with a split in the corner of the wood from the screw being over tightened and won’t lay flush to pour syrup in. I haven’t tried using that one yet but the other one was perfect. The candy mixture was very easy to make and filled the frame with little waste. I put it in my hive today and am interested to see how the bees like it. Some bees were already crawling on it when I closed the hive. Hopefully the uneven one will hold in the candy mixture when I fill it. I recommend them and think they’re worth the cost.
