Seldom Fools Apiculture is a small apiary with big ideas.

We have some of the usual range of products available: honey, lip balms, hives and accessories, but we’re also selling revolution.

The beekeeping industry has a dirty secret. Conventionally produced honey, that “pure” and “natural” product crafted by the industrious honey bee isn’t anywhere near a pure and clean as they’d have you believe. From spring to fall, one toxic brew after another is dumped into the hive in the name of “health”.

We’re here to say that not only is it generally not necessary, in most cases it does more harm to the overall health of the hive than it does to help.

Have a poke around and you’ll see what we mean. We’ve been successfully keeping bees without any kind of chemical treatments (not even those allowed by the organic standards) since 2008.
