The BBKA was set up in 1874 to promote and further the craft of beekeeping and to advance the education of the public in the importance of bees in the environment. It is the UK's leading organization representing beekeepers.

They promote:

  • the importance of bees in the environment
  • support for beekeepers through education necessary to maintain healthy colonies of honey bees
  • awareness of the craft of beekeeping

On behalf of members, they lobby Government, the EU and Official Bodies on the importance of providing adequate funding for honey bee research.
