The Mid Bucks Beekeepers Association was founded in 1946 to serve the needs of beekeepers in the central area of Buckinghamshire bounded by Great Missenden to the south, Winslow to the north, the counties of Hertfordshire and Oxfordshire to the east and west. With more than 200 members, MBBKA has a thriving and active membership who strive to support their fellow beekeepers, as well as providing related educational services to the wider community.
We hold meetings on the third Wednesday of the month where during the winter invited speakers present on different aspects of beekeeping as well as other general topics. In the summer the meetings are of a more practical nature and are held at our Training Apiary on the outskirts of Aylesbury. If you would like to join please click here.
We run a New Beekeepers Course each year starting in February, if you are interested in joining our 2020 course please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration for the 2020 course is now open. Link to booking site
The 2020 Beginners course is now fully booked but we do hold a wait list in case of cancellation. Please follow the link to the booking site to access the wait list.
The Mid Bucks 2019 AGM will be held on Wednesday 16th October.

As an Association we run a swarm hotline for members of the public who discovered a swarm. Before calling the number please first go to the BBKA website to confirm that you have actually discovered a swarm of honeybees. Last year of 80% of the calls we received were for Bumble Bees which we cannot help you with.
The swarm number is: 07770 370132
If you have received an MBBKA Wild Flower Seed packet instructions can be found here.
