About our Club
The Stark County Beekeepers' Association is a nonprofit, educational organization of beekeepers in in Northeastern Ohio. We welcome both professional and amateur beekeepers. Meetings are free and open to the public, and individual and family memberships are modestly priced.
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 interested in becoming a member, please submit an application.
Our regular meetings are usually monthly, but are sometimes preempted by special events such as a picnic or field trip. Check the calendar for the latest schedule of meetings and activities.
If you are a property owner with a swarm or feral colony of unwanted bees, check the Bee Removal page for a list of beekeepers to contact.
