Welcome to Burton and District Bee Keepers Association - formerly the Burton Branch of the Derbyshire Bee Keepers Association. The ancient history of the club is very limited, but records for our Honey Show date back to 1954. In January 2017 we attained Association status in our own right, embarking on a new era. . Burton and District Bee Keepers Association welcome all Bee Keepers from the enthusiastic beginner to the most educated Master Beekeeper to come and join our club; each has something to share and offer, whether it be enthusiasm, experience, or both.
Practically-focused apiary meetings, study groups, and workshops are offered for our members, both to prepare them for the British Beekeepers Associations' examinations, or to help them expand their knowledge and develop new skills. We have a comprehensive library available for members to borrow.
We welcome everyone interested in bees and beekeping; if this is you, come along to one of our meetings (we usually hold these monthly, but are currently (January 2021) offering a series of talks on Zoom until we can all get together face-to-face - which we much prefer). Please see our Other Events page for our winter talks; if you are interested in joining, please go to our Membership pages, where further details can be found; if you have any other enquiries, please use the Contact form below, and we will be happy to respond.
And remember, beekeepers come in all shapes and sizes; from 9 years old to 80+ years old, which are you?
