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

Members can order items from our shop online and collect from the apiary at Temple Newsam.

This can be done by following this link: 


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. 

Please aim to arrive around the time shown, as we do not have enough space to get out all orders in advance so rely on the timely collection of orders to make space. The shop is opening earlier as many people are working from home and closes 15 minutes after the last order collection time. If you haven't arrived at your collection time we will do our best to contact you via phone if you have provided a contact number.

As part of the online system we use you may receive an "Order in progress" and/or an "Order ready for Pickup" email, don't wait to receive these before collecting your order - if your order isn't going to be ready around the time shown on your original order email we will be in touch with you in advance.

When visiting Temple Newsam please comply with the Government social distancing measures that are in place at that current time. You will also see that Temple Newsam have information signs around the car parking area informing people what to do.

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.
