Welcome to Harlow Beekeeping Division, part of the Essex Beekeepers Association (Reg. Charity 1031419).


How can we help?

Maybe you have come to us today because you have a swarm, maybe you would like to start beekeeping or join our group, or maybe you’d just like to see what you can do for bees and grow some plants they might like. If you can’t find what you want then feel free to drop us a line and we’ll be happy to help.

The group

Our objectives are to promote and further the craft of beekeeping. We encourage and assist beekeepers to keep their honeybees in good condition and be aware of the needs and problems of their honeybees.

Many of our members have had years of practical beekeeping and their experience is a valuable resource. Our members show great dedication and enthusiasm and are eager to pass on their knowledge in this craft.

We have active email group discussions about beekeeping and meet once a month for demonstrations, lectures and discuss how we are getting on. We also have a monthly newsletter with news of the divison, upcoming events and what to expect from your bees this month.
