Welcome to the Northern Kentucky Beekeepers Association
We are an organization of beekeeping enthusiasts. Beekeeping is
a centuries old hobby - keeping and caring for honeybees to preserve
them for their usefulness in pollinating plants and providing healthy
beehive products that include honey, propolis, bees wax and pollen.
