Evesham Beekeepers Association is an enthusiastic group of local beekeepers from Evesham and the surrounding villages who meet throughout the year to promote the pursuit of beekeeping in our district.
Members range from life-long hobby beekeepers, bee farmers, Master Beekeepers and those who are completely new to beekeeping.
The Association runs a branch apiary at Pershore College where practical demonstrations take place throughout the season, and an active programme of practical sessions and guest speaking events over the winter.
Members are often keen gardeners, promoting the planting of pollen and nectar rich plants in their own gardens, and surroundings.
Honey made by members can often be found for sale in local farmshops, or at fetes and country shows.
Beekeeping is a year-round hobby which involves checking hives every week from spring through to early autumn. The winter is often spent making, cleaning and repairing equipment, and ensuring the bees have enough food to get them through the winter when they don’t fly.
