The Barnstable County Beekeepers Association (BCBA) is a 40+ year-old group of more than 300 honeybee enthusiasts from Cape cod and the surrounding area.
The BCBA meets monthly to discuss topics relevant to beekeeping on Cape Cod. Topics include hive management, honeybee pests and diseases, swarm control, plants and pollination and extracting honey. In addition, the club runs a number of annual activities including a course on the Basics of Beekeeping and a display at the Barnstable County Fair and the Harvest Fest.
