Phil Chandler, teacher and author of 'The Barefoot Beekeeper', talks about 'balanced beekeeping' and explains why he believes we need to change both the way we grow our food and the way we work with honeybees if we want them - and ourselves - to survive and thrive. Beekeeping has been all about honey production. Now we need to learn to value bees for their own sake - for their part in nature as pollinators of many plant species, both wild and cultivated. The Barefoot Beekeeper is available in print or as an ebook from

inspired me

I took a traditional beekeeping course a few years ago and never bought bees because it was too expensive and too much work... not only that but the course left me more confused than before I started it. I came upon your podcast and was inspried, I am now a topbar have beekeeper and LOVING it! We are going to make several more this winter and put them up on the smallhold for next spring. I have my first one in my back garden and it is such a pleasure. Thank you for getting this information out there for us .... it is so simple and not very expensive... I can't say enough.

Excellent podcast

Very well presented and easy to listen too. Have built a hive using his plans and been beekeeping following his advice. Well worth listening too, would advise looking at the book.

An excellent introduction

This is an excellent introduction to Natural Beekeeping, and what is generally meant by that term. Possibly slightly overlong for an introduction, but still engaging. Important to keep it as simple as possible for starters I liked the friendly tone.
