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.

A provocative podcast this time - looking at some of the ways that stupid, greedy and irresponsible beekeepers may be damaging our bees and risking importing exotic pests and diseases that will make things even more difficult for our indigenous bees.

If you are new to beekeeping and are about to buy a 'nuc' to get you started, you need to listen to this episode.
