Beverley Beekeepers’ Association exists with two primary objectives:

  • to promote and further the craft and science of beekeeping and associated interests
  • to advance the understanding of the general public to the importance of bees both in the environment and in the economy.

The Association has around 150 members with experience from those about to start exploring the hobby to those with decades of beekeeping experience. We advise that all those who are interested in taking up beekeeping to make contact with their local association to plan the best way forward for their own circumstances. Do feel free to join us during the winter at our monthly meetings if you would like to see what we get up to.

Our experienced members are available to help, guide and nurture anyone who wishes to find out more about beekeeping and develop their skills in handling bees.

The Beverley Beekeepers’ Association covers the East Riding of Yorkshire and Hull but we work with adjacent Beekeeping Associations to preserve and promote Honeybees in our area.

Beverley Beekeepers Association is an Affiliated District Association of the Yorkshire Beekeepers Association (YBKA) YBKA is our local Area Association, one of 75, of the British Beekeepers Association (BBKA) The BBKA represents around 25000 beekeepers in England.
