Welcome Beekeepers…

We would like to welcome all beekeepers to the Haywood County Beekeepers Chapter (HCBC) of the North Carolina State Beekeepers Association and it is our hope that the information contained in this website will enlighten and inspire you about honeybees. Our goal is to offer information and encouragement to beekeepers of all levels as together we learn and grow in our desire to care for bees as we help our local community to understand more about these busy pollinators of the environment.

Haywood County Beekeeper’s Chapter (HCBC)

 The Chapter is beginning its sixth year as a bee club and has grown to over a hundred honeybee enthusiasts; mostly as hobbyists who manage only a few hives. However, the club does have members who are master beekeepers with varying ranges of expertise, some of these members have over twenty-years of beekeeping experience. During any typical HCBC meeting, you will find beekeepers who share a common interest in learning more about bees and their habitat, while sharing knowledge with others in the club.

As beekeepers, we understand the impact that bees have on the environment and on our society, because honeybees pollinate crops that are responsible for one out of every three bites of food that people consume. From a national perspective, this represents a fruit, vegetable, and crop industry totaling more than $14 billion dollars that allows local communities to grow food. Additionally, honeybees pollinate many plants in the natural landscape, And, there is always lots of honey to go around. Below are a few of the annual activities and services that the Haywood County Beekeepers Chapter provides:
