The Minnesota Hobby Beekeepers Association (MHBA) is a friendly group of over 400 beekeepers. Our group is nicely balanced between new beekeepers and those who are highly experienced. Our members manage anywhere from one to several hundred hives. Some of our members are not currently keeping bees, but are simply interested in bees and their well-being.

Although we are called “hobby beekeepers”, we work hard to:

  • Keep healthy colonies
  • Develop better beekeeping skills
  • Help curb decreasing honey bee populations locally and regionally.

Our affiliation with the University of Minnesota enables us to learn from outstanding speakers and tap into current research. By focusing on education and monitoring our recently established demonstration hives, we improve our methods and become better beekeepers.

Come learn with us—all are welcome!
