Welcome to ‘Beekeeping Fife’
We are in the process of developing the 2022 Beginners Course, please keep checking the website, we will issue details once the course is finalised.
Two Beekeeping Associations serve the whole of that area bounded to the North by the Firth of Tay, to the South by the Firth of Forth, to the East by the North Sea and to the West by a line roughly joining Kincardine to Perth.
The Fife Beekeepers’ Association serves the Mid and East of the area and
The Dunfermline & West Fife Beekeepers’ Association the Mid and West.
Within this web site you can discover the latest association news and learn more about events and activities including details of our classes for beginners.
The associations hold interesting talks throughout autumn and winter, open to anyone, on a range of beekeeping and related topics. Subjects range from aspects of local and worldwide beekeeping to mead and candle making. In the summer there are regular demonstrations in practical beekeeping at various members’ apiaries. These are open to non-members by prior arrangement.
Although there are two associations they work closely together and have many members in common. There is no fixed boundary to delimit the areas covered and all members of one association are welcome to attend meetings, events and demonstrations of the other.
The associations are both affiliated to the Scottish Beekeepers’ Association.
