About FBKA

Set in the grounds of the Rural Life Living Museum in Tilford, Farnham Beekeepers Association aims to support and encourage the craft of beekeeping. We are keen that everyone should be well informed about bees and their importance to the environment.

As well as information on our website, courses on beekeeping and practical help and advice through our apiary, we visit schools and other societies to give talks, often bringing one of our observation hives in the summer season.

We are able to advise on swarms, collecting them where possible, as well as offering advice on bumblebees, other bees, wasps, etc.

Farnham Beekeepers is one of the 8 Divisions of the Surrey Beekeepers’ Association – the other divisions are Guildford, Croydon, Epsom, Kingston, Reigate, Weybridge and Wimbledon.

We draw our members from the south-western corner of the county.  There are no fixed boundaries to our division with members from Bentley in the west through to Elstead, Godalming and Shamley Green to the east, Bagshot and Camberley to the north and Grayswood and Haslemere in the south.

Surrey Beekeepers’ Association is an independent registered charity and area member association of the British Beekeeping Association.
