2009 Reprint of original 1934 edition. Paperback, 171pp. The Dadant family, originally from France, is one the first families of beekeeping in America. Charles Dadant (1817-1902) is considered one of the founding fathers of modern beekeeping. He was always seeking a better way to keep bees. Just as he had begun with the old European "eke," he quickly abandoned that kind of beekeeping for the modern Langstroth hive concept. Bee hives have often been designed and built without regard for the needs and habits of the honey bee colony. Probably the best design for a colony was the large hive developed by Charles Dadant. It provided a large, deep brood chamber with plenty of room in which the queen could lay, and shallower supers for honey storage. However, the price and promotion of smaller hives offered for sale during the period from about 1885 to 1900 made them more popular. Charles son, Camille Pierre Dadant, authored First Lessons in Beekeeping, a standard and still important work on this subject. Dadant's book and its succeeding editions have been America's first stop for beginning beekeepers for over 90 years. Lavishing illustrated with photographs.

Perched amid the leaves of the Osage orange tree in her stepfather’s backyard, Beryl Fonteyn observes the life around her—Mama’s desperate attempts to gain Jack’s approval by writing her novel, which he mercilessly critiques; her brother Stevie’s unhealthy fascination with acting out events from the Bible; and Jack’s obsession with his bees—all the while imagining that her runaway father will one day return. But as Beryl’s adolescent turmoil collides with the confines of Jack’s eccentric home, a shattering secret will divide their loyalties—and in one irrevocable moment the home that Beryl’s family has found, their shelter in the storm, will be torn apart forever. . . .

Marina Marchese's inspirational and practical story of learning to raise honeybees and creating a life she loves. "[An] engaging, delightfully informative work." - Publishers Weekly "Marchese has given us a lovely gift. Honeybee is an entertaining and useful primer for the novice and honeybee devotee alike." - Washington Times "Surpassing the predictable "how I changed careers" memoir of finding the good life, Marchese's informative guide is packed with facts about everything from pollination to harvesting, life cycles to historical lore, nutritional benefits to gourmet flavor combinations, medical applications to unusual varieties." - Booklist Marina Marchese fell in love with bees during a tour of a neighbor's honeybee hives. She quit her job, acquired her own bees, built her own hives, harvested honey, earned a certificate in apitherapy, studied wine tasting in order to transfer those skills to honey tasting, and eventually opened her own honey business. Today, Red Bee® Honey sells artisanal honey and honey-related products to shops and restaurants all over the country. More than an inspiring story of one woman's transformative relationship with honeybees (some of nature's most fascinating creatures), Honeybee is also bursting with information about all aspects of bees, beekeeping, and honey?including life inside the hive; the role of the queen, workers, and drones; pollination and its importance to sustaining all life; the culinary pleasures of honey; hiving and keeping honeybees; the ancient practice of apitherapy, or healing with honey, pollen, and bee venom; and much more. Recipes for food and personal care products appear throughout. Also included is an excellent, one-of-a-kind appendix that lists 75 different honey varietals, with information on provenance, tasting notes, and food-and-wine pairings.

So you started keeping honey bees last year. Your first year, no doubt, was overwhelming. You meticulously prepared them for winter and much to your surprise, they survived! Now what? On the other hand, if your first year ended in a total loss over the winter, what now? What lessons does a winter dead-out provide? What are the strategies to get a fresh start? How do you prevent repeating the same lessons over a second time?Second-year bee hives that survive the winter are an entirely different animal than the nuc or package you installed a year ago. These hives are ready go, which means a potential honey harvest awaits you. But before you order up your plastic squeeze bears and dream of winning a blue ribbon at the county fair, you will need to think about managing the swarming impulse. All colonies of honey bees carry a genetic instinct to swarm. If your honey bees swarm, you lose the margin of foragers responsible for your harvestable honey.Now the question becomes of whether or not you address the swarming inclination, and whether or not you want to harvest honey. Spoiler Alert: If you have close neighbors, it's a good idea to develop a strategy for swarm management. Secondarily, how will you prepare for a potential honey harvest? Where and how will you harvest your honey? Once harvested, then what? Where will you store it?Your second year also holds the promise of splitting hives, making nucs, and the possibilities of expanding. Maybe you'll need an additional location. How far do you want to take this dream of expanding your hobby?Second-year beekeeping holds a lot of promise. Each choice contains a variety of options. In this volume from the Back Yard Beekeeping series, Missouri beekeeper Grant Gillard explores potential scenarios and the possible options. Grant started keeping honey bees in 1981, back in the days when this hobby was far less complicated. Today, he manages around 200 colonies and sells his honey at local farmer's markets. Follow Grant's advice and suggestions to make the most of your hobby, with the special emphasis on choosing the option that works best for you.
