About Us

We are Kansas City and western Missouri area beekeepers who meet monthly to share knowledge, swap tips,
and promote beekeeping in western Missouri. Whether just beginning to explore the possibility of
keeping bees, a hobbyist beekeeper with a few hives in your backyard, a “side liner” earning
extra income, or a full time beekeeper, you will find something of value here.
