We are trying our hand at beekeeping this Spring and I knew absolutely NOTHING! After reading this book, I am now on information overload. There is a lot to know and learn about beekeeping, but I feel like this book will be a great resource to keep on hand. Easy to read. Nice chapter bullets at beginning of each chapter. Good charts that are easy to read and understand. I'm excited about our next farm adventure (and a little nervous)!
