About Us

Howard County Beekeepers Association


Our purpose is to promote honey beekeeping in Howard County, Maryland by providing a forum in which current honey beekeepers may become more knowledgeable of best practices and the public can become more, and accurately, informed on the benefits of honey bees.

Meetings are held the 2nd Tuesday of each month (January through November), from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM, in the Dining hall at the Howard County Fairgrounds in West Friendship, Maryland. We offer a seminar to introduce beekeeping to those who are interested, as well as a full beginner’s course for new beekeepers.  Go to our Classes page to learn more about these courses.
