Welcome to the new website of the "Jersey Bee Keepers Association" (hosted by the BBKA) This  website contains information and frequently asked questions about bee keeping in Jersey.


Sadly only 21 members turned up for the AGM to hear the inspired Bob Hogge (outgoing President) outline his momentous plans for a purpose Bee Keeping Centre here in Jersey

for those who didn't attend, you will find that the

2016 Membership Form can be downloaded

from the link at the top right-hand corner of this page.


It should also be noted that due to a lack of support for the "JBKA 100 Club" it has had to change it's name (to a somewhat lower number..!) this in due course has been reflected in the amount paid out in winnings, so for the remaining ticket holders, if you receive a cheque from Gary (our Treasurer) for rather an odd amount, don't be surprised...!

The June Draw took place at the recent Council Meeting

and the winning numbers were as follows:-

1st =  11

2nd = 65

3rd  = 45


We can now be contacted by emailing us at '

We also have Base Ball Caps, Tee-Shirts, Polo Shirts, and Hoodies in various colours for sale,

along with Mugs all with our new JBKA logo.

 Remember, you don't actually have to be a member of the JBKA to buy any of this branded merchandise, but we'd prefer if you were...!

Please support your local bee keepers.



for further information email '

The next JBKA event is on Sunday 17th July at 2:30pm.

it is hoped that this will be an Apiary visit, hosted by a JBKA member.

If any JBKA member is prepared to provide a location please advise the Secretary



Bee Classes

The Jersey Beekeepers Association runs one set of 5 theory classes in early spring

each year before active beekeeping usually starts.  Time, weather and other conditions permitting,

we also try to hold at least one Practical, hands-on (gloved of course) session at an

apiary or two in the summer and give advice to those fortunate enough to have acquired  bees.  

We can also advise on mentors to call for help when the bees don't behave as

they're "supposed" to - after all, they do not read all the books about beekeeping!!!


Please contact Judy Collins (JBKA Education Officer) to add your name to the list for any future classes and for any queries... email "
