The Northeastern Kansas Beekeepers Association is a 501(c)5 non-profit organization.

Beekeeping is an increasingly popular, enjoyable, and deliciously rewarding hobby. As a local association, we offer you some advice on how to continue and get started in 2020. The association connects you with other beekeepers, and supports a common effort to promote and protect bees, and the beekeeping industry, of which we are all a part.
