The Portage County Beekeepers
Association is an organization for the novice and
professional beekeepers in the Portage County Ohio area. Joining
is easy. For just $5.00 per year you
can enjoy all the benefits of our organization including our
meetings, Field Day and Summer Picnic. Dues are payable at any
of our meetings (see the calendar below).
During Field Day we have a hands-on learning experience. We open hives, check for the queen, look for warning signs of problem, such as varroa mites or hive beetles, and have many experienced beekeepers ready to answer your questions. You don't want to miss this opportunity.
We have a mentoring program for new beekeepers or anyone who would like some personal help. Feel free to contact any of our mentors from the list on the left.
Thank you for looking and we hope to see you soon.
