Although our monthly meetings are free and open to the public, there are many benefits of being a SFBA member:

  • Group order for packages of honey bees (queen and approx. 10,000 bees)
  • Beekeeping classes and mentor programs
  • Access to borrow from club equipment library, including honey extractors, hive carriers, candle molds, frame jigs, observation hive, an extensive library of beekeeping books and other media.
  • Reduced rates for classes and events
  • Discounted subscriptions to Bee Culture and the American Bee Journal
  • Member only field trips

The greatest benefit of SFBA membership is the camaraderie and beekeeping support, mentoring and information exchange that members provide one another.
