The goal of the Wood County Beekeepers’ Association is to:

Encourage and promote beekeeping

Serve as a resource for local beekeepers

Educate the community about the honey bees and beekeeping

Provide a platform for an exchange of ideas and knowledge among beekeepers

The Wood County Beekeepers’ Association is made up of all types of honey bee lovers: novice, experienced, young and old. We welcome you to join us as we learn about honey bees. As a group we share our experiences, commiserate over our failures and celebrate our victories. Together we learn about new techniques and share the “tried and true” of beekeeping.

Bee in flight

A honey bee can fly up to 15 m.p.h.

Their wings beat 200 strokes per second, hence their distinctive buzzing sound.


The Wood County Beekeepers’ Association is an affiliate member of the
