Beginning Beekeeping Toolkit

How to Start a Beekeeping Operation

As a public service, the ABF offers free beginning beekeeping information, which can be found as PDF files linked below.

If you are unable to access these links, please send an e-mail request to info@abfnet.org, including your name, mailing address, phone, e-mail and fax. For specific questions, please also include a brief description of your beekeeping experience, the number of bee colonies you possess and the name of your nearest largest city. Please allow up to 10 business days for a reply.

Some other ideas to help you learn more and get involved:

  • Make friends with another local beekeeper
  • Join the ABF and a local bee club
  • Contact your County Extension Service
  • Consult your state or county agriculture department
  • Visit the Beekeeping Links page of the ABF website
  • Visit your public library

Thank you for your interest in bees. Good luck and have fun!
