BKAs (Bee Keeping Associations) are centres of knowledge, advice and assistance. They hold the beekeeping knowledge and teach it to future beekeepers. The BSBKA is passionate about bees, honey and the enjoyment you can find through keeping bees and harvesting the produce. Our aim is to encourage the craft of beekeeping and advise, help support and encourage beekeepers. We are fully affiliated with the Dorset County Beekeepers association and the British Beekeepers Association.
