JEFFERSON COUNTY BEEKEEPER ASSOCIATION

About JCBA




We are a group of beekeepers in Jefferson County, Colorado that have formed a club for both new and experienced beekeepers who wish to connect with other area beekeepers. You can continue your beekeeping education by meeting with other knowledgeable people in the beekeeping community. We will discuss relevant topics, share successes and failures, share resources, learn a variety of management techniques, find a mentor/mentee, and have lively discussions in a fun, social setting.



History



Jefferson County Beekeeper Association was established in 1998 by a group of backyard beekeepers. Meetings with outside speakers were held several times a year combined with social events. The club went dormant in 2007 as membership waned but was never officially abolished. In 2019 with a surge of interest in beekeeping and new ordinances allowing backyard beehives, local beekeepers saw the need to revitalize the club. We hope to connect with new and experienced beekeepers in and around Jefferson County and are looking forward to many years of successful beekeeping!
