The Barefoot Beekeeper

The Barefoot Beekeeper was the title of my first book, published in 2007. Since then, I have written several more books, aimed at people who want to keep bees in a simple, reasonably natural way, without investing a lot of money and free from the synthetic chemical treadmill.

This podcast is irregular, variable in content and hopefully somewhat useful and interesting to beekeepers of all flavours.

You can find my website at and you will find me on Facebook and rarely on Twitter.

One of the first problems encountered by beginners to top bar beekeeping is how to get some bees into those boxes. This podcast will help you with some ideas and techniques that can be applied to most of the circumstances you are likely to find yourself in.

A detailed article on this subject with the title 'The Barefoot Beekeeper's Guide to Starting a Top Bar Hive' will be available soon from
