About the Tillamook Beekeepers Association

Mission Statement

The Tillamook Beekeepers Association is a 501(c)(3) organization committed to safeguarding and sustaining honey bees.  We do this by improving our own beekeeping practices and we seek to help others do the same.  We exist to promote the study, science, and art of keeping honey bees and to provide education, encouragement and mentoring to beekeepers in the Tillamook region of Oregon.  Introducing the importance and gentleness of honey bees to children and adults, who are not beekeepers, is just one of our many important goals.

Public Services

Monthly Meeting:  Join us at 6:00 pm on the second Tuesday of each month.  We meet at the Tillamook County Library community room.  Actual meeting time is 6:30, we meet for socializing for 30 minutes prior to start time.

  • These meetings are informative, educational, and deal directly with questions about beekeeping and all the issues associated with beekeeping.

    Semi-Annual beginner beekeeping classes:   Are you thinking about becoming a beekeeper? Come to our Introduction to Beekeeping Class.  We’ll answer all your questions like;  What are the benefits in keeping bees?  How much honey will I get? Will I get stung? Do I have a good location? Where do I get bees?  What equipment does it take? How much does beekeeping cost? We will discuss the parts of a hive and the choices you will need to think about.  There are many challenges to keeping bees in Tillamook.  After this class you will have all the information you will need to know how to become a beekeeper.
