About

Helping the honey bee and the beekeeper in their pursuit of a healthy and thriving Hive

The New Hanover County Beekeepers Association was founded in the fall of 2010 by a group of like-minded and passionate beekeepers wanting to centralize our resources and expertise and share the knowledge and experience with others.

As an association, we aim to educate the community on importance of honey bees and serve the Wilmington-area through swarm removal and more. View our community resources.

Welcome to the world of bees

The NHCBA meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at the Halyburton Park, 4099 Sth 17th Street Wilmington NC., unless otherwise announced.
