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

Great stuff

As an new beekeeper, it is great hearing information from someone who has been around the block a few times, especially if you live in an area that does not have a lot of "natural" beekeepers around. I hope this podcast will be longer in the future, and have some practical guides for treatments of bees using natural products such as essential oils. Looking forward to the next podcast, and future episodes!

Keep Buzzing

Presently I live in a suburban environment, but keeping bees at my condominium complex is against the rules. Sooner or later I'll get out into a real country area where bees are welcome. Until then, the Barefoot Beekeeper allows me to vicariously enjoy my apiarian interests. Keep up the buzz!

Great info!

Phil Chandler's information and inspiration got me started with beekeeping last year. The podcasts are great - particularly this latest video re: feeding fondant. Looking forward to many more opportunities to learn from my bees, and Phil.
