Welcome to the Dromore Beekeepers' Association website.
The Association meet in Dromore High School, 31 Banbridge Road, Dromore, Co.
Down, BT25 1BD. We meet on the third Tuesday of every month from August through
to May, excluding December.
Since its formation in 1984 the DDBKA has sought to promote and further the
ancient art of beekeeping. We are an association of small scale beekeepers with
members from around the Dromore area of County Down, Northern Ireland. Our
interests lie in learning about and caring for honeybees, the nurturing and
promotion of the native black honeybee, to produce the finest honey and wax
products on the planet, and to encourage newcomers.
To this end we run several beekeeping
through the winter in conjunction with the Ulster
View Training Courses for 2012/13 and application form.
