Moray Beekeepers Association was established in 1919. We are a growing number of mostly amateur beekeepers located in North East Scotland, with the association being based in Moray.

MBA exists to promote and foster an interest in the study, development and practice of beekeeping and to protect and conserve the future of the honeybee in Moray and Scotland.

Please join us and help to preserve and protect the honeybee!!

The cost to join us is very modest and the benefits are substantial! Further details can be found here


“Honeybees are truly the gardener’s friend and are not the killer beast depicted in the cinema. If not for them
and the other species of bees, plant life would be reduced to mainly wind-pollinated grasses and trees, as
bees pollinate most of the flowering plants. Their value to food production is priceless as they pollinate many
of the crops grown worldwide…”
Interested in how you can help bees? We’ve produced a new, updated conservation pack to download.


For Association members only – Throughout the summer we carry out our seasonal management tasks on the colonies at Birnie. You are most welcome to come along and help out. Please get involved, your beekeeping association needs you!
Contact the secretary to get the detailed dates and times for these sessions.
