About KSBA

The Kentucky State Beekeepers Association (KSBA) is a volunteer-led, non-profit organization dedicated to beekeeping in Kentucky. We represent Kentucky’s backyard, hobby, and commercial beekeepers and local beekeeping associations. Anyone interested in beekeeping is welcome to join us.

Our objectives are:

  • To promote legislation and assist beekeeping as a local, state and national industry or hobby;
  • To encourage and charter local associations to be affiliated with KSBA;
  • To inform members about honey bees and beekeeping;
  • To provide a forum for training in the art of beekeeping and the production of honey;
  • To inform the public about the importance and contribution of honey bees to the welfare of all people; and
  • To encourage others to become members of KSBA.
