Product Description

Review

'The author is not only an experienced beekeeper who looks after fifty colonies but also a committed teacher who possesses a great passion for bees and a deep understanding of their behaviour and nature...The text conveys the reader smoothly through this refreshing insight into the bees' world, the photographs, various biological illustrations, line drawings and tables are all designed to enhance the learning process from this book. On a literary note, there are also two delightful poems...to add to the reader's pleasure...Good value for money at GBP8.99.' --Bee Keeping, Dec. 2006 'Michael Weiler is an experienced beekeeper who looks after fifty colonies. He is a teacher with a great passion for bees and deep understanding of their nature. I had already begun to apply organic principles within my own beekeeping and I am now convinced that the biodynamic route is the one I shall take.' -- Philip Chandler of the Wholesome Food Association, in Star and Furrow Winter 2005, after participating in a day-course on 'The Nature of Bees and Biodynamic Beekeeping' with Michael Weiler organised by the BDAA 'Informed by a Goethean perspective, this fascinating book about the life cycle of a bee tells the reader all they need to know about the subject.' --Scientific and Medical Network Review 'This delightful and detailed little book takes us on a wonderful journey through the beekeeping year...The outline of the Demeter Beekeeping Guidelines at the back of the book will be especially useful to beekeepers considering how they can best work with their bees.' -- Sue Peat, The Anthroposophical Society in Great Britain Newsletter, Oct 2006 'If you're an experienced bee-keeper wishing to know your bees better, and more so if you're one that likes to share the art of bee keeping with fellow human beings, then this little book shows how!! The writer, Co-director of the Demeter association in Germany, takes us by the hand on a wonderful journey through the beekeeping year.' --Star and Furrow, Winter 2006 'From poetic opening lines to a royal jelly finale this wonderful book has been written from the heart-mind of a man who truly loves his bees. Readers may feel themselves transported to stand beside the beekeeper, accompanying him as he tends to his hive. Which is of course the book's defining strength. Well illustrated with excellent photographs and clear diagrams.' -- Harvests Magazine, August 2007

Format: Paperback
I have kept bees for a number of years and have quite a collection of books on the subject. Bees and Honey, from Flower to Jar is one of my most recent purchases and I have to say that it is the most interesting and informative book that I have read on beekeeping. The author, Michael Weiler takes the reader on an exciting journey into the world of the Honey Bee including all aspects of its' behaviour and development. As he gently took me on a journey into the hive, I marvelled at the sights, sounds and smells of a typical honey bee colony. I noticed things I had not previously noticed in my own colonies. It is a book suitable for novice and more experienced beekeepers and anyone who has an interest in Nature. Highly recommended.

Having kept bees for two years I have built up and read a small library on bee keeping but this book is not another book on bee keeping, rather this is a book about the bees themselves. Through many years of bee keeping the author, Michael Weiler, has observed and interpreted the bees behaviour and shares his insights in this delightful book. Many of the questions that you ask yourself whilst manipulating the hives are not discussed in the normal books as they have no relevance to increasing a honey crop yeild or swarm prevention. I have really enjoyed this book and feel that I have definitley learn't more about the bees behaviour and will hopefully be able to apply this new knowledge to my own hives next year.

Format: Paperback
This is the first book I bought on bees having become interested in sustainable beekeeping. What a great choice it turned out to be. It is written in a gentle, sympathetic and informative way. I have learnt so much! I love the approach of the author and am hoping to do a course with him through the biodynamic association. I think this approach is the only way forward to help save the bees and his balanced outlook will make this book appeal to everyone. A great read.
