We are building a knowledgeable beekeeping community through fellowship, classes, and events.
As a local association, we've been around for a while...since 1948! People are keeping bees in the city, suburbs, as well as out in the country! We make beekeeping fun and interesting. We share ideas on best practices - keeping your bees alive, ways to collect and harvest honey, process bees wax, market your products. We have always been BIG on honey bee education. We share ideas on what to do with your beeswax, and how to best present your products. We have members of all ages and levels--new hobbyist to professional. Our meetings are open, and there's no pressure to join. See our Bee FunDay page about our next big educational event. Also check out ourCalendar page.
