Welcome to ‘Beekeeping Fife’
Due to the current Covid-19 Pandemic all outdoor apiary visits and indoor lectures have been suspended during 2020. Members will receive online lecture details via email for any Zoom events taking place.
Unfortunately we will not be running a Beginners Course in 2021 due to the ongoing restrictions the Pandemic has imposed. However we will be running an online Introduction to Bees and Beekeeping Course instead, see the dedicated page for details.
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.
