We are passionate about beekeeping

Oxfordshire Beekeepers Association (OBKA) is a registered charity that has supported beekeepers across Oxfordshire for over one hundred years. We provide training courses at our apiary in Woodstock, support a range of social media channels to enable our members to share their experiences of beekeeping, and organise talks at various locations across the county (and via Zoom) during the winter period. We have a diverse and friendly membership, from beginners through to experienced beekeepers running up to fifty hives. Where practicable, we support education projects in schools and in the community and we run one or two demonstration events for the public every summer. 

We welcome new members, whether you just want to know a bit more about bees and beekeeping, through to experienced beekeepers moving to the area.

Follow OBKA’s beekeeping adventures on ‘Our Beekeeping Year – 2022‘ page including a video tour of our training apiary and bee garden.

We have lots about what we do on this website; the quick links below will take you so some pages we hope will be of immediate interest.
