Halifax and District Beekeepers Association


The Halifax and District Beekeepers Association (HBKA) is one of the 22 local associations which make up the Yorkshire Beekeepers Association (YBKA).

We are based in Halifax, West Yorkshire and we serve the beekeepers in the Calder valley all the way from Todmorden to Brighouse.

We arrange a series of talks over the winter period, and in the summer we arrange various apiary visits as well as representing the association at the Halifax Agricultural Show and other summer events.

Training and Support

The association runs a training course for beginners in the spring each year and this is supplemented by ongoing support and mentoring to give new beekeepers the best possible start.

In addition to the basic training, various workshops and events are organised to help beekeepers of every level prepare for the many formal qualifications which are developed and administered by the British Beekeeping Association.
