Welcome to the official site of the North Carolina State Beekeepers Association

The NCSBA is a volunteer led organization comprised of more than four thousand active members, almost all of which are hobbyist beekeepers that are also members of a network of local beekeeping associations. These local associations are chartered by the NCSBA and serve to help their members learn and enjoy the practice of keeping bees.

Throughout North Carolina, the beekeepers of the NCSBA can be seen promoting the honey bee to the public at beekeeping schools, county fairs, festivals, and special events. You may have seen some of us presenting at a public event such as Bug Fest in Raleigh, Bee Friendly Day in Tarboro, National Honey Bee Day at Waynesboro State park in Goldsboro, at our Honey Bee Exhibit at the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro, or at the North Carolina State Fair in Raleigh where we promote the goodness of NC honey with our annual honey sales program.

With our master beekeeper program, we have helped thousands of people become certified beekeepers and learn the very interesting practice of beekeeping. Our local chapters participate in this program by offering bee schools on an annual basis where individuals can learn and become certified beekeepers.

Come and join us at the Spring conference to be held February 25th, 26th and 27th at the New Bern Convention Center, New Bern, NC.  You will find more details about the conference including registration information later on our site and under “Programs & Events”.
