Gulf Coast Beekeepers of Florida

Gulf Coast Beekeepers of Florida! We welcome you to join us for bee-friendly events & workshops! All skill levels encouraged to join!

At our meetings, we hope to educate and mentor beekeepers of all skill levels.
We will be discussing what should be going on in your hive that month, any current problems we face as beekeepers, current pest and infections, local and state legislative as well as where to get equipment and supplies locally and any current bee-related events.

We will have a honey booth during each County Fair where we will sell local honey, honey straws from our members and give away free information on beekeeping and honeybees.

There will be two Intro to Beekeeping courses  throughout the year to help encourage and educate new beekeepers.

Some of our beekeepers also sell their Honey at the local farmers markets and others may participate in bee removals. So, there will always be something for everyone.

If you live in Sarasota, DeSoto, Charlotte, Collier or the northern part of Lee counties, we encourage you to participate at a location closest to you.
