About the MBA

The Monadnock Beekeepers Association is a beekeeping club for both beginning and experienced beekeepers in the Monadnock and Connecticut River Valley regions. We usually meet on the first Thursday of each month either at Stonewall Farm in Keene, NH or at the Dublin Public Library in Dublin, NH. Please feel free to come to a meeting or contact us if you have an interest in beekeeping.
