ABOUT US

Our goal at Perry County Beekeepers Club is to provide an open and collaborative space where beekeepers can come together to learn and share experiences. We are a community of passionate beekeepers devoted to maintaining the health of honey bees and their ecosystems. Through our meetings, workshops, and events, we aim to provide beekeepers of all levels with the education, resources, and support they need to succeed. Come be a part of our community and let's keep the bees buzzing.
