The Susquehanna Beekeepers Association of Maryland is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides support to beekeepers in Harford and Cecil County. Our main objectives include educating our members and the public about honey bees and beekeeping, serving as a valuable resource for experienced beekeepers, and assisting new beekeepers in learning effective beekeeping management techniques. Additionally, we strive to raise awareness about the importance of honey bees and actively promote the practice of beekeeping.
