When I wrote The Barefoot Beekeeper in 2007, I had no idea what kind of
reception it would have among beekeepers or the wider world. It came as a
pleasant surprise when some people began to enthuse about this 'new' (actually,
very old) way to keep bees and built their own top bar hives. When people began
to join my web forum to post pictures, discuss their progress, ask questions and
share ideas, it became apparent that the concept of lowcost, lowimpact,
medicationfree ...

Alys Fowler, Steve Benbow. Therefore I decide to make a call to Phil Chandler,
the Naked Beekeeper – or the Barefoot Beekeeper, I should say. Phil has been
one of the main pioneers in top bar beekeeping in the UK and has experimented
with numerous styles and formats. Keeping bees for the sake of keeping bees

Principles In The Barefoot Beekeeper, I proposed the following three, simple
principles for the 'natural' beekeeper to consider: • Interference in the natural lives
of the bees is kept to a minimum. • Nothing is put into the hive that is known to be,
or likely to be harmful either to the bees, to us or to the wider environment and
nothing is taken out that the bees cannot afford to lose. • The bees know what
they are doing: our job is to listen to them and provide the optimum conditions for
their ...

When deciding which course to take, you may also need to make a choice
between two fundamentally different approaches to beekeeping: the
conventional school of framebased beekeeping promoted by beekeeping
associations, or the more hands-off top-bar, or 'Warré hive', beekeeping practised
by the natural beekeeping movement (whose chief proponents Phil Chandler, the
Barefoot Beekeeper, and the Natural Beekeeping Trust are based respectively in
Devon and Plaw Hatch ...

As the bees hate to be disturbed, there has sprung up a wu wei school of
beekeepers who adhere to the Taoist principle of minimum interference, rather as
Fukuoka does with crop growing. However, other beekeepers insist that
interference is necessary in order to control pests and diseases, of which the
most recent example is the varroa mite. Today, minimum interference – and there
is an excellent book on this approach called The Barefoot Beekeeper – I suspect
is, paradoxically, ...

But I don't ask them for advice on natural beekeeping. They are traditional,
Langstrothhive beekeepers. I recently asked the most progressive among them (
in terms of organic pest treatment) if he'd ever heard about top bar hives and he
shook his head. I'm on my own here for the time being. Perhaps this will change
soon. I still enjoy the meetings and encourage you to seek out your local
beekeepers, but unless yours is in the minority, you will have to look elsewhere

Its widespread adoption in recent years can be attributed to the publication in
2007 of The Barefoot Beekeeper[24] by Philip Chandler, which challenged many
aspects of modern beekeeping and offered the horizontal top-bar hive as a viable
alternative to the ubiquitous Langstroth-syle movable-frame hive. The most
popular vertical top-bar hive is probably the Warré hive, based on a design by the
French priest Abbé Émile Warré (1867–1951) and popularized by Dr. David Heaf
in his ...
