We are dedicated to helping beekeepers keep bees. We share ideas and suggestions that help all who are interested in beekeeping. We offer free classes in the spring for new beekeepers and meet once a month to discuss techniques and ideas. If you are interested in becoming a beekeeper please join our club. If you are a beekeeper you should already be a member and trade ideas and solutions to beekeeping problems. Together we can ensure the survival of a beneficial insect.

The Ozarks Beekeepers Association was organized November 11, 1974, and was formed to engage in activities promoting the common interest of beekeeping and the general welfare of beekeeping.
