Welcome to our website. The New Forest Beekeepers' Association represents the interests of beekeepers and beekeeping in the New Forest and surrounding area. We are one of the largest beekeeping associations in England and we are affiliated to the Hampshire Beekeepers' Association and the British Beekeepers' Association. If there is anything that is not covered here and you would like to know please get in touch using the contact tab above.

Established over 100 years in the New Forest we have a full program of events throughout the beekeeping year. The highlight being the Honey and Bee Tent at the New Forest County Show.

Introductory course to Beekeeping 2021

We run a course every year for people interested in becoming beekeepers or just interested in beekeeping.

Here are some upcoming events for our members.

Meetings During Lockdown

Dear Members,

By now most of you will have seen we are using ZOOM as our medium for the monthly members meeting. These have been very successful with an average 40 members joining in each time.

We are hoping, all things being equal to have our Membership meetings back at the community Centre in January, but that is obviously dependent on many Covid related factors.

The bookings for the rest of the year are below, and you can download ZOOM here, if you haven’t already.

Depending on how you use zoom it may ask you to download some software so just follow the on screen prompts – more information about Zoom and how to use it can be found here https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/categories/200101...

The “Talks” in the past meetings are available to download/view in the members area.

Upcoming Meetings

All The meetings below are now ZOOM meetings. We can see no evidence that the current situation will be changing. However if it does we will be the first to reinstate our popular members meetings at Lyndhurst. In the meantime your and others safety is paramount.

January 21st Roger Patterson:- Queen rearing

February 18th Dr Anna Oliver:- The National Honey Monitoring Scheme,
