Book Description

25 April 2009 Self Sufficiency
As sustainability and organic living become increasingly popular, so does a desire to live a more self-sufficient lifestyle. This timely book will help you to achieve self-sufficiency and make beekeeping a reality. Beekeeping is about management, control and learning to understand the honeybee. It can also become a very enjoyable and sociable pastime - visiting others' hives and picking up vital hints and tips is all part of the fun - and farming and eating honey that your own bees have produced is a pure delight. Joanna Ryde covers all aspects of beekeeping, from the basic tools and equipment needed for setting up a hive to detailed advice on when to harvest honey and honey-inspired recipes, from delicious cakes to beauty products. This really is the definitive guide for anyone thinking of keeping bees.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read for novices 31 Aug 2009
Format:Paperback
Having read a few books about beekeeping i found this book one of the best. It is clear and easy to understand with lots of info in the book. If you only buy one book on the subject this should be considered a very good option.
