Who Can Join the Club

We invite anyone that is a beekeeper, interested in becoming a beekeeper, or simply interested in honeybees, to join the club. Whether you have 1 hive or several, or none, you will find the club a great place to meet fellow beekeepers and learn about the amazing world of honeybees and beekeeping.

Benefits of Joining the Club

The NCBA meets monthly to discuss topics relevant to beekeeping. Our programs include hive management, honeybee pests and diseases, swarm control, plants and pollination, and much more. In addition we often show movies related to beekeeping. We also have a raffle table and several door prizes each month. Other benefits to joining the club are volume discounts on bee packages & nucs, bee equipment, glassware and other bee related products. We also have a member forum where you can post questions and answers. In addition, you benefit from having the knowledge of beekeepers, some with over 40 years of experience. We also offer “Bee School”. The classes run 10 weeks and will prepare you for becoming a full-fledged beekeeper. The school is run in the winter from February to April. We also publish a monthly newsletter. As well we have a online forum for all members!

What does it cost?

Membership dues are $20 a year for a single person, a couple, or family all living in the same household.
