Barefoot Beekeeping

Owen Jones recommended this book to me earlier in the Summer when I met him at the Royal Norfolk Show.  Having read it I would heartily recommend it to other beekeepers or anyone thinking of taking it up.
Check out the Biobees website.

I joined the local Bee club beginners class a couple of years ago. I was very much driven down the conventional hive route at first, but ended up rebelling and starting with homemade top bar hives as shown on the front cover of the book. They are indeed relatively cheap & easy to build - and they work! An affordable and refreshingly differnet way in to a fascinating hobby.

I wasn't really thinking about the cost but the welfare of the bees and my back!
