Product Idea

Bee Yard Apiary

This is a Lego version of an apiary (also known as a bee yard) which is a place where bee hives of honey bees are kept. The set would include two beekeepers, three bee hives, a hive tool, and hive smoker.

This set would make a nice addition to any farming or gardening collection.
