Présentation de l'éditeur

So you want to start keeping bees? Where does a newbee or hobbyist place their bee hives? The back yard is the most obvious choice, but there are many factors, including municpal ordinances and relations with the neighbors. Urban beekeeping is on the rise and roof top apiaries are becoming popular. Still, there are several factors that limit and define the most successful apiary site selection.

Grant Gillard, a beekeeper since 1981, keeps 200 hives in southeast Missouri on over 30 locations, sometimes called "out yards." In this manuscript, Grant details what makes for the ideal location for the bees, plus cites a number of other criteria helpful to the beekeeper. Just like in real estate, the admonition of "location, location, location," rings true for the honey bee and honey production.

Biographie de l'auteur

Grant F. C. Gillard began keeping bees on the family farm in Glenville, Minnesota, after graduating from Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa, with a degree in Agriculture in 1981. While in his sophomore year, seeking the easiest class possible to elevate his battered grade-point average, Grant ignored his advisor’s derision and enrolled in a seemingly innocuous class entitled, “Entomology 222: Beekeeping,” taught by a retired high school biology teacher and adjunct professor, Richard Trump. Without grasping the potential blessings and lifelong implications this providential twist presented to his academic life, Grant was hopelessly inoculated with the desire to keep honey bees, which would later include visions of commercial aspirations. Grant was active during his high school years at the First Presbyterian Church in Albert Lea, Minnesota, where he was baptized and ordained as a ruling elder. Returning to his home church after his college graduation, Grant’s church members, along with the Rev. Elmer Bates, convinced him he’d make a better pastor than a farmer. Their encouragement spun his life in yet another improbable direction. In 1987, Grant graduated from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California, with a Master’s of Divinity degree. It was there he met another Presbyterian student, Kansas City native, Nancy Farris. They married in 1986 during their senior year at Fuller. He later obtained a Doctor of Ministry degree from Aquinas Institute of Theology in St. Louis, Missouri, in 2000. He’s only served two congregations thus far in his twenty-six years of ordained ministry. With his newlywed wife, the two served as co-associate pastors at the White Clay Creek Presbyterian Church in Newark, Delaware. With a desire for more opportunities to preach and teach, Grant moved his young family to Jackson, Missouri in 1993 where he answered a call to serve as the pastor of the First Presbyterian Church PC(USA). His active involvement over the past twenty years redefined his ministry as more of a community chaplain. Grant combines his passion for beekeeping with his pastoral duties at the church. Grant currently operates around 200 hives and produces honey for local retail sales and farmer’s markets in southeast Missouri. He also produces nucs, removes swarms and has published several other manuscripts on the topics of beekeeping and personal growth. You may contact Grant for your next conference at:

Since I am a beginner in beekeeping I learned a few things in this video.It is for people like me who know nothing about beekeeping so it was worth watching.

The title "Beekeeping 101: Where Can I Keep My Bees?" clearly informs the reader of the limited scope of this short work (I hesitate to call it a book.). The author has a conversational, casual style of writing that is easy to read and understand. Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed by the content. He often repeated himself in a slightly different manner as though he was trying to stretch the length of his work. In my humble opinion, the author could have said everything he needed to say about locating hives in five to 10 pages.

This is a very misleading book. No pictures, no diagrams, just this mans story about how he kept bees, not an informational or educational book if you are interested in keeping bees yourself.
