Beekeeping Mentor in a Book

by Donald P. Studinski
 
This book takes you through a year of beekeeping without chemicals, with the assumption you are a complete beginner. Every other chapter is focused on a month of the year while the chapters between pick an applicable topic to explore further. This is not an idealistic view of someone who had only had a few hives for a few years, but rather it's the real experiences
