Everyone, or so it seems, is interested in keeping some bees, thanks largely to a mysterious disease known as Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). But most of these people have no idea on what it takes to raise bees, where to place the hive, where to obtain bees and how much the bee equipment costs.
Grant Gillard, a beekeeper since 1981, shares his passion and enthusiasm as to why he keeps bees, and how he stays motivated despite receiving bee stings every time he works his bees. He also shares the delight of harvesting and selling honey at several local farmer's markets.
This manuscript helps you define your purpose as to WHY you want to keep honeybees, but also how you allow your purpose to fuel your vision of where you might want to go (or where you might want your bees to take you!).
Grant shares some "how to" techniques on getting started, but also richly expresses his philosophical reasons for keeping honeybees. A must read BEFORE you decide to enter into this fanscinating hobby of the honey bee.
