We are a group of beekeepers who keep honey bees around the Des Moines, Iowa, area. There is no fee to join our group.
IF YOU SEE A SWARM OF HONEY BEES, SEND A PHOTO TO BEN (319) 830-8632. We remove from bee trees and structures, too — have a look.

We aim to meet the third Thursday of every month.
Mission: To increase awareness of honey bees and their population through passion, sustainable practices, networking, and mentoring.
Vision: By enacting the mission, we envision the following
- A public that is educated about and welcoming toward honey bees and beekeepers
- Beekeeping events in the community
- Partnering with local, related groups
Our passion will be expressed through education to other beekeepers and outreach to non-beekeepers.
