It’s been awhile since I’ve seen or talked with Sam Comfort. I met him while we were both in Florida, more than 5 years ago. Back then, he was raising commercial queens. And I was looking for a new and different experience before retiring.
So, there was this young man with his passion for bees, talking with this old guy about top bar hives and natural beekeeping, over lunch, at Pei Wei’s in Boynton Beach. What a delight for this old guy!
Later I returned to Wyoming. Sam left commercial beekeeping and relocated back to the east coast with those nucs he talks about.
Since then, I’ve followed Sam through his Anarchy Apiaries website and his public speaking. If you haven’t heard Sam’s common sense beekeeping approach, check out this 2 part video series courtesy of the Philadelphia Beekeepers Guild. Thanks guys.
It’s been awhile since I’ve visited with Sam. Since then, both of our experiences have confirmed our conversations in South Florida.
