Information for new Beekeepers

If you are interested in becoming a beekeeper, have a look around the links below and if you are in the Waikato come to our club meetings, or join a local club.

We offer mentoring services for new beekeepers who join the club. We also organise bulk buying discounts on beekeeping products throughout the year.

All New Zealand beekeepers are legally required to register their hives/apiaries with either Assure Quality or the National American Foulbrood Pest Management Strategy Agency.   Editable NZ Beekeeper Registration form - pdf
