About BYBA

Back Yard Beekeepers Association

The Back Yard Beekeepers Association (BYBA) provides its membership with a forum for sharing knowledge in beekeeping, and is dedicated to educating beekeepers and promoting the benefits of beekeeping to the public. Joining a beekeeping club is a great way to learn more about beekeeping, get answers to all those questions you have, and meet other folks with similar interests.

BYBA Bee Yard

The Back Yard Beekeepers Association is fortunate to have a bee yard at Trout Brook Valley in Easton, CT.  We are continually grateful for Aspetuck Land Trust’s permission to make use of the property.

The club maintains a number of hives and conducts numerous workshops there including hive inspections, queen rearing, and others.

The Wannabees program has their bees at the bee yard, as well.

PLEASE NOTE: The bee yard is fenced and locked, and only open by appointment for workshops or other events.  Don’t plan on just “dropping in”.

ALSO NOTE: THERE ARE BEES HERE.  A veil is highly recommended when visiting the bee yard.

The Wannabees is a group specially tailored for young beekeepers and their families. Open to kids of all ages, the Wannabees care for their own hive at the BYBA Bee Yard in Easton and meet monthly with beekeeping mentors and members of the local beekeeping community. They learn about good beekeeping practices, environmental impacts, local habitat, and how to gather and use honey and other hive products.
