We are a very friendly and active association of hobbyist beekeepers in and around Leeds, West Yorkshire and the surrounding areas.  

Behind the scenes, while lockdown has persisted, we have been working on our shop system to introduce changes such that we are in a position to offer contactless collections from Temple Newsam once restrictions allowed us to do so. To this end all items can now be ordered online - we have nearly got a picture of everything so you know what you are ordering. Please note if you are ordering a complete hive, we now have that option in the shop. Additionally we will not have boxes of jars in stock until June.




Once you have placed your order, you will receive an order confirmation, which will include a pick-up time - our system automatically offers you the next available slot - we can't control this. If the slot doesn't work for you please contact us and we will adjust to suit. 


Moving forward we will be limiting members to one order per month until all members have been able to place an order to spread demand.


When visiting Temple Newsam please comply with the Government social distancing measures that are in place at that current time.

Here at LBKA we encourage all of our members to sign up to BeeBase.

BeeBase is the website of the National Bee Unit and by signing up and registering your apiaries you will be helping to effectively monitor and control the spread of serious honey bee pests and diseases.  You may also be able to arrange an apiary visit from your local inspector who can provide the comprehensive help and advice you may need.

BeeConnected is a nationwide initiative that provides a more efficient and effective way for farmers to inform beekeepers of their intention to apply an insecticide. If you register your hives, then you will be informed by email if a local farmer intends to treat their crops.  Click here for further information.
