About Us
Who are We?

Wisborough Green BKA is bordered by ten other beekeeping associations, all in excess of 15 miles away, many of them town based. We cover a mainly rural area of West Sussex and South Surrey. We suggest that beekeepers visit all the BKAs they are willing to travel to on a regular basis, then join the one that suits them best.

There are no geographical boundaries and although we are called "Wisborough Green BKA", many of our members live some distance from Wisborough Green, some even in other counties, which indicates that we provide the services they want.

We are a progressive and friendly group who encourage all those who have an interest in honey bees and hive products, whether they are beekeepers or not. We have dedicated meetings for those who don't own bees yet, but are interested in doing so.

Beekeeping has a reputation of being for "older" people, but we are proud of the fact that a high proportion of our newer members are younger people with young families, showing that beekeeping can be a family hobby.

We regularly have juniors who attend meetings and handle bees. Our meetings are held in a vibrant and jovial atmosphere and there is usually some light hearted banter, but the emphasis is on learning because that is why most people join us. We have had a phenomenal growth in membership from 34 in 2004 to around 160 in 2018.
