IMG_1145About Luke

Luke Fulton lives in Dunsborough with his wife Marnie and three children Isla, Wyatt and Raphael.  After receiving John Seymours book The New Complete Book of Self-Sufficiency, Luke first read about keeping bees. Excited at the idea of producing his own honey he set up a hive soon after. Two years later Luke has developed a great relationship with his bees and a deeper understanding of their importance and benefits they provide to mankind much greater than just harvesting honey.
Shocked at the decline in honey bee health around the globe and discovering that Western Australia is the last place on earth with healthy bees Luke decided to start Noah’s Ark Beekeeping.  Luke believes there has never been a better time to begin beekeeping then now!
Luke is passionate about getting others started in beekeeping, helping you to learn the basics and building up your confidence to start the amazing journey into the world of honey bees.
