Group Description

The Plymouth County Beekeepers Association of Plymouth County Massachusetts (the PCBA) is a 501C3 non-profit educational organization founded by local beekeepers dedicated to the support of local apiculture & agriculture. Our primary goals are to further the art & science of beekeeping, the mutual support & education of our members, and to inform & educate the public about beekeeping through our participation in local fairs and festivals, our “Beekeeping For Beginners School” and presentations given by our members to local and regional schools, community groups and organizations.

Our organization holds monthly meetings where our members discuss current events in beekeeping, ongoing projects, and to share and compare thoughts and ideas.

The PCBA has had a long and mutually beneficial relationship with the Marshfield Fair (Marshfield, MA). The Fair, held in August, allows our members to meet and inform the public of what it takes to become a beekeeper and how vital the honey bee is to our nation’s agriculture.

The USDA has estimated that 80% of insect crop pollination is accomplished by honey bees and approximately one-third of the total human diet is derived directly from insect pollinated plants (fruits, legumes and vegetables).
