Hello and welcome to the home of natural-beekeeping. We have made some changes to the design of the website recently, so please do not be alarmed if you do not recognise this new look,  the content here is still the same.

By the way, it is not just the design of the website that has changed. My name is Ian and I have taken over the production of the beautiful Warre hive that David has so skilfully produced in the past and will continue to manage the Natural-beekeeping website including the training courses that are provided.

In addition, the geographical home has also changed.  I live in Lincolnshire, so any training and or workshops will be based in this area unless requested.

I do hope that you find this website easy to navigate, informative, easy on the eye and the home of the most beautiful Warre beehives.

Natural Beekeeping Definition

  1. Interference in the natural lives of the bees is kept to a minimum.
  2. Nothing is put into the hive that is known to be, or likely to be harmful either to the bees, to us or to the wider environment and nothing is taken out that the bees cannot afford to lose.
  3. The bees know what they are doing: our job is to listen to them and provide the optimum conditions for their well-being.
