So why should you bother joining a Beekeeping Association and why North Devon Branch ?

Well, if you are just starting out in beekeeping, the support, training and advice that a Beekeeping Association can give you is invaluable.  And if you are an experienced beekeeper, then the facilities and opportunities to extend your knowledge, help others in starting up this fascinating hobby, or just socialise with similar minded people is well worth the modest annual fee.

Join us, and here's a list of some of the things you will get :
