Introduction to Beekeeping Courses 2021
Moray Beekeepers will start running an ‘Introduction to Beekeeping’ course this year, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic we are delivering the course now as a blended training which involves online meetings on Zoom, recorded presentations and once possible again a visit in our training apiary with one-to-one practice demonstrations. Please check again back in the near future for updated information. We plan to start the introduction course in April 2021.
Further details about future courses and booking opportunities can then be found on our ‘MBA course page‘.

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.

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