Welcome to the Welsh Beekeepers’ Association (WBKA) website, we hope you find your visit enjoyable and informative.

We are the Welsh National Beekeeping Association to which the nineteen local Associations within Wales are affiliated. You could, perhaps, see us as a honey bee, the head being the voice of beekeeping in Wales, the thorax being the hub of information and the abdomen the catalyst for action.

Individual (Direct) Membership of the WBKA is possible, but most of the 1,650 membership are indirect members, in that they belong to one of the nineteen local independent beekeeping associations.
