The goal of the SBA is to educate association members and the public about honeybees, beekeeping and related arts, to provide a resource for established beekeepers, to aid new beekeepers in bee management techniques, to inform the public about the value of honeybees, and to promote beekeeping in general.

Member benefits: As a club we help our members by buying bulk purchases of different beekeeping products that are needed to feed bees, treat for diseases, as well as items used in harvesting honey. The club has honey harvesting equipment that can be borrowed by members. For more information see the membership page.

Young beekeepers grant program: if you are 14 to 18 years old, residing in the Harford or Cecil County area, and are interested in beekeeping, you are eligible to apply fo rhte SBA Young Beekeeper Grant! This grant is offered once per year to promote interest in beekeeping among young adults. For more information see this page.
