About the Author

Amber Bradshaw loves foraging for her food, gardening, and cooking outdoors. She teaches others how to become self-sufficient by making eco-friendly goods from scratch. Goats are an essential part of her sustainable life on her family's farm in the mountains of East Tennessee. Her Nigerian Dwarf goats provide fresh milk and income from selling registered babies.


"Finally - a beekeeping book that's truly for beginners. Amber walks the reader through all the basics of beekeeping with patience, a sense of humor, and honesty - including information many books skip. Well done."--Laurie Neverman, Common Sense Home

"A must-have resource for any beekeeper! We've had two hives for about four years and I still learned so much from this book. Before reading Amber's book I felt like I was winging everything we did with our colony. But now I feel confident to make the best decisions for our bees!"--Victoria Pruett, A Modern Homestead

"Amber passionately and beautifully expresses the necessity and how-tos of keeping bees. Her in-depth knowledge--from the legality of keeping bees, equipment necessary to the extracting of honey, and maintaining healthy hives--is evident throughout. Every chapter is filled with...instructions that will take you through the entire process of beekeeping."--Stacy Lyn Harris, TV Personality, Author of Stacy Lyn's Harvest Cookbook, Blogger at, and lover of bees!
