THE BEEKEEPER'S BIBLE

The Beekeeper's Bible is as much a guide to the practical essentials of beekeeping as it is a beautiful almanac to read from cover to cover. Written by Richard A. Jones and Sharon Sweeney-Lynch, it's a part history book, part handbook, and part cookbook. This illustrated tome covers every facet of the ancient hobby of beekeeping, from how to manage hives safely to harvesting one's own honey, and it features ideas for how to use honey and beeswax.

Detailed instructions for making candles, furniture polish, beauty products, and nearly 100 honey-themed recipes are included. Fully illustrated with how-to photography and unique etchings, The Beekeeper's Bible will provide any backyard enthusiast or gardener with the confidence to dive into beekeeping (or simply daydream about harvesting their own honey while relaxing in the comfort of an armchair).
