The Apiary

Durham Beekeeping Association has its own apiary which is run by a group of members. It can be visited, and the best way to find out when and how is to attend one of the monthly meetings, or send an email using our contact page. At different times of the year there are different jobs to do, so if it’s something you’d like to be involved with then get in touch.

Thinking of setting up an apiary? – If you are please first have a read of this handy guide published by the British Beekeepers Association: Bees, Neighbours, and Siting an Apiary
