Backyard beehive center of dispute in Spring Hill neighborhood - WKRN, Nashville News, Nashville Weather and Sports: SPRING HILL, Tenn. -
A back yard beehive in a Spring Hill neighborhood is the center of a dispute.
The beehive belongs to Bryce Martin who placed the bees on his back deck in 2009.
"This beehive has been here about three-and-a-half-years approximately," Martin told Nashville's News 2.
Martin, who lives in the Ridgeport subdivision, said he was notified by the homeowners association that he is not allowed to keep bees in his yard.
"I can understand and I agree with the covenant to a certain extent, but the question is, does that apply to my beehive," Martin said.
He contends that HB 1671 pasted last year supersedes the HOA rules and allows him to keep bees on his property.
To bee or not to bee...that is the question in this Privatopian principality.
