Beekeeping Clubs in NYS

Beekeeping clubs are fantastic sources of information for new and experienced beekeepers. Each club in NYS is different, but most offer monthly meetings, mentorship for new beekeepers, and workshops. The official state-wide beekeeping club for New York is the Empire State Honey Producers Association, and all beekeepers are encouraged to join this club. Many counties also have clubs that provide regional information and allow beekeepers to network and learn from others in their neighborhoods.
