Join The Association

Why join an Association ??

The skill of successful beekeeping requires a lot of experience and expertise. The beekeeper needs to have access to knowledge and practical beekeeping know-how which takes years to acquire. By joining an Association you are immediately linked to like-minded people who can help you deal with problems, which can arise at very short notice between inspections. Having a number of bee-buddies can be the difference between keeping your bees in the hive and producing a surplus of honey or watching your stock and your crop disappear over the hedge.
