Home News and Events The Beekeeping Year Knowledge Centre Members Forum Our Services Gallery About The SBKA

We've increased the range of material on the site and added many new features. If    you've visited us before, you'll still find the helpful introductory descriptions,    of how to take up beekeeping, and what makes it such a fascinating craft. We have    however, substantially increased the range of advice and guidance, in the form of    'How To...' papers and videos in our new Knowledge Centre section.

In order to localise activity and facilitate services to members, the Somerset Beekeepers'    Association is split up into twelve Divisions. Please see the link above in About the SBKA to find a division near you.

Browse the new site and find new features and articles. Join in the Beekeeping forum    or follow your division on Facebook . Use the new search feature to find what you are looking for more easily.

Made with new protocols to be compatible with computers and the ever growing trend of using tablets and smart phones we hope the new look site will help engage our younger members. A gallery is now available to showcase photographs of anything beekeeping, Send us your pictures of your apiary, hives, meetings, swarms etc.

Welcome to the Somerset Beekeepers' website.
