Carroll County Beekeepers Association

Welcome to the Carroll County Beekeepers Association!

The purpose of the CCBA is to educate the public about the importance of honey bees to our food production; to interest people in becoming beekeepers; to teach modern beekeeping techniques; to assist new beekeepers in getting their private apiaries started; to keep its members informed of new methods of successful beekeeping; and to promote the value and use of honey, beeswax and pollination.

Please join us for a monthly meeting to learn more! Monthly meetings are held the 3rd Wednesday of the month at Bear Branch Nature Center 300 John Owings Road, Westminster MD, 21158

NOTE: Due to the size of our club and the COVID19 pandemic we alternate between Zoom, Bear Branch, and other meeting locations. Meeting locations are posted on our calendar on our Events & Meetings page.
