The Kansas Honey Producers Association

aka  Kansas State Beekeepers


As the state organization for Kansas beekeepers, we provide connections for beekeepers across the state. We do this in several ways: 


  1. We hold 2 meetings a year with outstanding speakers and workshops. Our Spring Meeting is held in March, and the Fall Meeting in October. 
  2. We publish a quarterly newsletter, which includes events and meeting and articles and information helpful to our state beekeepers. 
  3. We also provide public education and service about beekeeping. Our members are speakers to garden clubs, schools, and other educational groups. We have established apiaries throughout Kansas; have participated in educating groups to become beekeepers. 
  4. We have representatives who attend national beekeeping meetings to assure that we have current knowledge available to us in Kansas.

The Kansas Honey Producers Association (KHPA), formerly The Kansas State Beekeepers Association -the name changed in the 1981, was started over a 111 years ago for the purpose of promoting good beekeeping practices, to promote honey, to enable beekeepers from various areas to meet and share experiences and ideas, and to publicize the honey bee as an important contributor to the nation's food supply. The date on the association president's gavel for the association's founding is December 30, 1903.

Our website serves to inform the public and other fellow beekeepers with industry news, membership information, meeting schedules, and contact information. Keep informed. Stay in touch.
