Connecticut Beekeepers Association
At Connecticut Beekeeper's Association, our purpose is to increase public awareness of the importance of honey bees for Connecticut agriculture and the environment. We are here to foster strong bonds among beekeepers and to promote the education and the advancement of the scientific knowledge of beekeeping and its related activities for the benefit of beekeepers and our communities. Our goal is to provide a common forum for the beekeepers of Connecticut to come together to share information and ideas.
Together we can achieve our goals:
Identify common problems facing Connecticut beekeepers
Share scientifically based ideas and information about pest and disease treatments
Increase public awareness of the benefits of consuming native honey and hive products
Bring new people into the hobby for a rewarding experience with honey bees and beekeeping
Swap stories of past successes and failures
Give you a voice with State and national representatives on issues that affect the industry

For almost a decade, we've partnered with Massaro Community Farm in offering hands-on beekeeping workshops from March through September. During Covid, we're holding these virtually.
