Hampshire Beekeepers’ Association (HBA)

– promoting and advancing the craft of beekeeping in Hampshire since 1882.
HBA unites members of local beekeeping associations within Hampshire through Conventions, Honey Shows, and Bee Health Days. We encourage and enable beekeeper training throughout the region, and we welcome opportunities to attend public events.
