Top bar beekeeping really is 'beekeeping for everyone' - including people with mobility problems, bad backs, or a general reluctance to lift boxes: there is no heavy lifting once your hive is in place, as honey is harvested by the comb rather than by the box. Top bar hives are good for bees, good for the beekeeper and good for the environment. In this book, I will show you how easy it can be to build your own hive from scratch, using new or reclaimed timber and a few simple tools. If you can make a decent job of putting up a shelf, you can build yourself a fully functioning hive that bees will be proud to call home. By the author of The Barefoot Beekeeper.

The author's first book. The Barefoot Beekeeper, set out a challenge to the world of conventional beekeeping and offered an alternative paradigm. It soon became apparent that other people had been thinking along similar lines, and when bees were headlined month after month in the national press, following the outbreak of so-called 'colony collapse disorder' in the USA, many more people became interested in bees and what became known as the 'natural beekeeping' movement began to emerge. Learning From Bees is a collection of short essays on bees and beekeeping, many of which are published here for the first time.
