Welcome to ‘Beekeeping Fife’

Two Beekeeping Associations serve the whole of the 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 and Perth.

The Fife Beekeepers Association serves the Central and East and
The Dunfermline & West Fife Beekeepers Association the Central and West.


We are in the ‘swarm season’ just now so if you think you have a swarm nearby,  please use our Facebook Pages to  get in touch quickly – use the map to decide which group to contact:

Fife Beekeepers Association

Within this website 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, there is no fixed boundary between the areas covered  by the two Associations. They work closely together, have many members in common and their members are welcome to attend meetings, events and demonstrations.

The Associations are both affiliated to the Scottish Beekeepers’ Association.
