Quad County Beekeepers is a small beekeeping association that meets the first Tuesday of each month. We have no membership fees and are open to the public. We hope to help individuals learn about beekeeping and build their skills by working with other beekeepers. We are open to all levels of beekeepers from beginners to those with more experience.
We held our first meeting May 2013. We have shifted from formal presentations to more of an informal discussion group. We have beginners to a Master Beekeeper as members. There are about 130 individuals that are signed up for our mailing list. Our meeting are held the first Tuesday of each month at the Lincoln County University Extension Center located at 880 West College Street in Troy Missouri.
Currently we have a board made up of five (5) Board Members, including President, Treasure, Content Manager, and Secretary.
