Steve Donohoe, beekeeping walrus

I’m Steve Donohoe, author of a book called “Interviews with Beekeepers.” It is based on my interviews with legendary beekeepers around the English speaking world. I was able to travel to meet amazing people and find out as much as I can about my favourite insect, Apis mellifera (the honeybee).

The book which is packed with useful information and amusing stories. It is basically a series of conversations between two beekeepers. My mission was to question the real experts – those who have kept bees for a living over a lifetime – and let their knowledge and experience be my guiding light. I hope that the book will appeal to all beekeepers, including those who have been at it for years, and perhaps even the odd “civilian” (somebody who doesn’t regularly stick their hands into the nest of thousands of flying stinging insects).

Interviews with Beekeepers will be in print in the fourth quarter of 2019; the publisher is Zuntold.

UPDATE: My “Queen of Queens of Blairgowrie” article was published in the centenary edition of BeeCraft Magazine (February 2019)
