The Yalding and District

Founded 2011

The Yalding and District Beekeepers Association was formed in January 2011 by a group of local beekeepers. It primarily serves the areas between Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells in Kent, but we welcome members from anywhere !

We pride ourselves on our "inclusivity" - we welcome members of all levels of experience, and with any type of hive - come and join us, to find out what a genuinely friendly bunch we really are!
