Welcome to the Back Yard Beekeepers Association

In accordance with recommendations of the State of Connecticut, and in the interests of the health and safety of all involved, we are canceling our March 31st general meeting.

We have arranged for Dan Conlon to visit us on July 28th, instead, to talk about queen rearing, bee breeding and assessment. More details on this will be shared later. 

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.

Come Join Us at the April General Meeting with Guest Speaker Anthony Planakis Tuesday, April 28, 2020!
