    This website is intended to connect beekeepers all over the state, to make our voices heard, and to keep us all informed about the Florida State Beekeepers Association and its effort to protect beekeepers and beekeeping in Florida.  Content for this website is continuously being created, updated, and shared.  We want to know what you need as a beekeeper in the state and how the FSBA can help you.  FSBA has had great history and success in protecting honey sales with the cottage food laws, funding the Bee Lab at the University of Florida, and protecting beekeepers by advocating for live bee removals without pest control licenses, to name a few.  Learn about new FSBA projects and focus here!

    Stop by often to stay connected and to keep your voice in the association!  Share photos and events, upload videos, start a discussion, keep track of board activity, or just talk about bees!  Please feel free to contact us with any ideas or additions for the site.
