Our purpose is to promote beekeeping in the Joplin and surrounding area and to help  both the beginning hobbyist and the advanced beekeeper in their endeavors to manage their bees successfully.

 Keeping bees is very rewarding and satisfying but, as with any form of husbandry, there are circumstances that need experienced know how. JABA has many advanced local apiarists who are more than willing to share their years of knowledge and experience. We invite you to become a member of the association.

If you have a question, contact us via email at  contact@joplinareabeekeepers.com

Meetings are the last Tuesday of each month at 6:00 PM.

Location: SMB Community Building, 4000 E 7th, Joplin (south of the bank, entrance is off Duquesne Rd)
