Beekeeping Today Podcast

Feb 7, 2020

Jeremy BurbridgeIn this episode, we talk with Jeremy Burbidge of Northern Bee Books, located in Mytholmroyd, in northern England. Northern Bee Books publishes books on every aspect of bees and beekeeping you can imagine. Jeremy is a retired school teacher and a beekeeper, and has been publishing not only books on bees and beekeeping for over 20 years, but also publishers two beekeeping magazines, The Beekeepers Quarterly, and Natural Bee Husbandry, another quarterly aimed at Natural Beekeeping and beekeepers, which is popular in the US.

Jeremy has been involved with the National Honey Show for decades, assisting with speaker selection and other details and was recently honored by the Show for his service. His book display stand at that show covers a dozen tables, which gives you a hint of how many titles he works with.

We urge you to take a look at their online catalog which lists and gives a description of each of the nearly 500 titles they carry!
