Natural Beekeeping

Growing in popularity globally, natural beekeeping offers an api-centic approach to beekeeping, mimicking the bees’ wild environments and honouring the natural rhythms of the colony.

Though there is some overlap with traditional beekeeping, natural beekeeping differs in several important ways, from the design and construction of hives through to the caretaking of the colony. Natural beekeeping encourages the creation of natural comb and natural reproduction through swarming, and reduces intervention in the hive by keeping hive inspections to a minimum. And while honey is harvested, it is an added bonus of beekeeping, not the main point.
