WATCH: Ross Conrad talks about Natural Beekeeping

Posted on Friday, June 18th, 2010 at 2:30 pm by admin

Ross Conrad, author of Natural Beekeeping; Organic Approaches to Modern Apiculture, discusses how a vision quest led him to a life of bee stewardship, and talks about his methods for raising these important but beleaguered pollinators. Nationwide, honeybees are rapidly diminishing in number as a mysterious condition dubbed “colony collapse disorder” wipes them out. They are a valuable, if tiny, livestock to include in a small-farm system. In this video, Conrad gives an in-depth introduction to the mighty bee and his approach to keeping them healthy and helping them thrive.

Conrad keeps bees in Vermont, where they pollinate apples and wildflowers to produce delicious honey and propolis, a natural antibiotic.
