The Geauga County Beekeepers Association was founded on January 8th, 1976 at the Fowler Mills Church. Our club has approximately 70 members who attend our regular meetings.

Our mission is to enlighten the public about the benefits of beekeeping; to keep members updated on information such as diseases, equipment and beekeeping events; and to support each other by sharing our personal beekeeping experiences as well as helpful hints and guidance.

Members keep up to date on each others losses due to mites, hive beetles and natural predators such as bears and skunks.
