The Back Yard Beekeepers Association (BYBA) has been educating the public about honey bees and beekeeping for fifteen + years. With over 400 members, our association has grown to become one of the nation’s largest and most respected clubs for beekeepers.

The mission of the BYBA is to provide it’s membership with practical information about beekeeping. The club also provides the general public with educational programs about honey bees and the benefits of beekeeping in our communities. The BYBA is a not for profit, 501C-3 charitable organization. There are 9 monthly meetings that begin at 7:30 pm on the last Tuesday of the month in January, February, March, April, May, June, September, October and November and are held at the Norfield Church Community Room, 64 Norfield Road, Weston, Connecticut.
