This page is used to explain my philosophical ramblings about beekeeping in general as well as some statistical data. 🙂
The Natural “Barefoot” Beekeeping Approach following Philip Chandler’s basic approach:
- Interference in the natural lives of the bees is kept to a minimum.
- Nothing is put into the hive that is known to be, or likely to be, harmful to the bees, to us or to the wider environment.
- Nothing is taken out of the hive that the bees cannot afford to share.
- The bees know what they are doing; our job is to listen to them and provide the optimum conditions for their well-being.
