Call me naive, but I have only just come across 'natural' beekeepers, who buy what seem very expensive 'natural' beehives and let the bees get on with it. This seems a recipe for huge numbers of swarms and potential spread of disease, with no apparent responsibility for what happens. I came across, on Twitter, the proud new owner of a 'natural' hive on a tripod and, when I asked him about prevention of swarms, he freely admitted that he knew nothing of that. Forgive me for being behind the curve on this development.
Don, welcome to forum.
The only natural beekeeping is non intervention as in feral bees living i(and frequently dying) in the wilds. You are spot on, taking this approach to keeping bees in your back garden shows an irresponsibility driven by lack of education as to what is needed to keep bees. If you keep livestock you need to take a responsibility for their management and welfare.
You are not naive, far from it.
