Keeping Bees Naturally using Permaculture Philosophy
Honeybee Keep™ promotes and practices Slow Money because small and local business is best for our community.
Thinking of becoming a beekeeper? "... until you are standing alone in your bee suit in your backyard and open a hive to a swarm of mad bees, or start breaking comb and killing bees, or inspecting your hive and your smoker goes out….nothing you read about or was told in a classroom will help you.
