Welcome to the Stanly County Beekeepers Association (SCBA) Blog

Today we’re launching the Stanly County Beekeepers Association (SCBA) Blog. The goal of this site is to inform people about our activities and educational programs. Most events are in Stanly County but several are region-wide and even state-wide.

While members of SCBA are dedicated to the health and well-being of honey bees throughout the community, we are members of the North Carolina Beekeepers Association ( and stay informed by having monthly meetings and presentations from a variety of beekeeping experts.

We will announce our monthly meeting locations, times, and topics as soon as the information becomes available.
