Welcome to the Cornwall Beekeepers Association

Welcome to the Cornwall Beekeepers’ Association (CBKA) website.  We exist to promote beekeeping to the public and to provide advice, assistance and education to beekeepers, and to encourage those wishing to begin this fascinating craft.

Join Cornwall Beekeepers


We welcome new members – here’s how to join us

Looking forward

Our aim for the future is to better promote all aspects of beekeeping in Cornwall and to help bring the craft into the 21st century, whilst continuing to address the ever-increasing difficulties and threats faced, directly and indirectly, by honeybees.

We offer all new and potential members an insight into beekeeping by encouraging them to join us at our apiary meetings, to learn more through our education programmes, and to get involved with the running of CBKA – as an association, we can never hope to grow or adapt to changing circumstances without the valuable input and fresh ideas of new and enthusiastic members.

We encourage those who are interested to get to know beekeepers local to them by joining one or more of the member groups, thus fostering a sense of community and ensuring that years of accumulated knowledge and expertise is passed on to the beekeepers of tomorrow.
