The Barefoot Beekeeper: A New Approach to Keeping Bees
Phil Chandler with his Top Bar Hive design.
I wrote about keeping bees in my article An Introduction to Beekeeping last year. I had mentioned the Top Bar Hive designs at that time, but I didn't go into detail about them. I think the best resource, by far, is the work done by Phil Chandler in his book (The Barefoot Beekeeper) and website (www.BioBees.com). If you have any interest in keeping bees, I highly recommend this site and this book.
Here are some quick links to resources created by Phil Chandler:
