Exploring the unique situation of beekeeping in South Florida
Sam Comfort worked for several years in commercial beekeeping across the country before starting Anarchy Apiaries in 2005. Through breeding queens from hardy survivor stock, the mission is to 1) make more beehives than there are televisions, and 2) have a good time, all the time (with bees). Anarchy Apiaries runs around 1000 hives and 500 mating nucs on the permaculture principal of minimal input; no treatments, minimal feeding, and homemade hives in New York and Florida. Through teaching self-contained, self-reliant beekeeping, we hope to make it more affordable, approachable, and enjoyable, as well as bring the means of production back to the beekeeper.
