About this book

From his first hive to fifty of them, from a fascinating hobby to a business venture, John Phipps has worked with honey and bees all his life. As editor of the foremost beekeeping magazine in Britain, John has travelled internationally to meet some of the most innovative beekeepers in Europe and Asia, to see at first-hand the many different ways they gather their honey and manage their hives. This is his fascinating account of 40 years experience with bees, a passion which has taken him from the Lincolnshire plains to his current home and hives in the mountains of southern Greece.
