Welcome to the Stark County Beekeepers' Association

You do not have to be a current beekeeper to participate with the Stark County Beekeepers. Those with an interest in beekeeping, or those who are retired beekeepers, are welcome as well.
If you are a property owner with a swarm or feral colony of unwanted bees, contact one of our members about honeybee removal.
