Living the Hive Life: a night of music, bees, and anarchy with Sam Comfort - LIVE!
After winning 6 hives in a poker game, Sam Comfort worked for several years in commercial beekeeping across America. He started Anarchy Apiaries in 2005 to explore permaculture ideas of low-input natural cycles. He experiments with hive designs and new ways to grow bees. The mission is to have a good time, all the time (with bees). Anarchy Apiaries runs around 1000 hives that split seasonally into 2000 mating nucs with no treatments, minimal feeding, and do-it-yourself hive boxes in New York, the Carolinas, and Florida. Through teaching independent, biological beekeeping, Sam hopes to make it more affordable, approachable, and enjoyable, and thus bring the means of production back to the beekeeper.
