Welcome! We will have a January 9th 2024 meeting.  Jamestown, CA, Jamestown Meeting Hall 6 – 8 PM.  If you are interested in beekeeping but need more information before jumping into it, this is the meeting for you.

Whether you are a Beekeeper, a NewBee or a WannaBee, we hope our website provides information and resources to help you become a better beekeeper.

The Sierra Foothill Beekeepers Association is located in the Sierra Nevada Foothills of California. Our beekeepers live in Mariposa, Tuolumne, Calaveras and Amador Counties. Join us at one of our monthly meetings, learn about beekeeping through classes we offer or through information on our website.

Everyone knows our bees are in trouble. We appreciate your interest in this fascinating and rewarding hobby. Beekeeping is one thing you can do on a small scale that has a global impact. You will find in this group, enthusiastic mentors willing to help you get started, new friends who share something in common and a developing passion for a remarkable insect that has a huge influence on the food we eat.
