Can anyone recommend a good resource on Biodynamic Beekeeping? My wife and I are considering adding bees to our homestead and are currently researching various methods and approaches. I just heard of Biodynamic Beekeeping for the first time this weekend, so am looking for a good book or other resource for learning more about the method, so we can choose the method that will be the best fit for us.

never read it myself, but Gunther Hauk's book, Toward Saving the Honeybee, comes up a lot.

though it doesn't advocate Biodynamics, I really like David Heaf's The Bee-friendly Beekeeper. been meaning to write up a review to post here, but more pressing needs have been preventing that. focused pretty exclusively on the Warré's People's Hive, but much of the approach advocated will be valuable for those favoring Biodynamics, too.

Thank you for the recommendations. I will definitely look into these two books.
