​​​​​​Northeastern Kansas Beekeepers Association

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

From the Treasurer's report in the January1969 'Buzzer', it shows the association sponsored a county fair way back in August of 1968 where $20.00 was paid for the booth fee. Fair prize money was paid out in September 1968. Go the the bottom of the newsletter page to read.We know there are beekeepers in other counties like Atchison, Miami, Douglas, Dickinson, Shawnee and more that may want to go in as a group and represent the association in providing education and interest in honey and other bee products. Let us know how we can help you in this endeavor for 2019. The organization has supported subsidized) several local fairs for local beekeepers interested in selling honey and educating about beekeeping since prior to 1993. Some of these were the Wyandotte, Johnson, and Leavenworth Co. fairs, the Kansas City Flower Lawn and Garden Show. (pg 5, Feb. 1993, NEKBA Buzzer).
