About Us
The mission of BYBA is to provide our membership with a forum for sharing knowledge and mutual interests in beekeeping, and to educate and promote the benefits of beekeeping to the public.
Welcome to the Back Yard Beekeepers Association. With over 250 members, our association has grown to become one of the Nation’s largest regional clubs for beekeeping hobbyists. Some of our members are just getting started as beekeepers, and some have enjoyed this hobby for years. All share an interest in the wonderful and remarkable world of the honey bee.
The purpose of the BYBA is to provide our membership with interesting and practical information about honey bees and the “how-to’s” of beekeeping. The club also provides the general public with educational programs about honey bees and the benefits of bees and beekeeping in our communities.
The BYBA is a 501(c)3 non-profit, charitable organization.

May General Meeting Featuring Alexandra Bartsch of the Lexington Bee Company

Tuesday, May 23rd @ 7:30 PM

Alexandra Bartsch lives in Lexington, Massachusetts, where she has been keeping bees since 1978.

Since 2016 she has been a master Beekeeper certified by the Eastern Apiculture Society.

Alexandra and her daughter Anastasia created the Lexington Bee Company in 2015 in order to provide bees for public and non-profit lands nearby and to foster beekeeping and beekeeping education. In order to do so, she depends on the assistance of the Lexington High School Beekeepers Association, which she mentors.

Alexandra will be speaking with us about The Nature, History & Uses of Beeswax

We look forward to seeing you there!
