Membership Levels

Our membership levels are designed to support your interest and the services we offer. You can subscribe to the site for free to get updates on all of our events, occasional promotions, and bee goodness.

Our paid memberships provide access to our content and services like the honey kitchen and consignment sales – Bee Lover if you just want the info; Hobbyist if you also have honey to extract or sell; Beekeeper if you’re doing this for any part of your livelihood.

Bee lover

This is our basic $25/yr membership level for folks who want to support our mission, get more in depth information about bees, and participate in our community.

Bee Lover membership is included with our beginners class and gives you access to class recordings and other exclusive content.

If you’re over 65 you get $10 off.


Hobbyist membership is $50/yr and for folks who might have a few hives and would like to sell a little honey to offset their expenses. Read more about membership benefits here. It includes use of our certified honey kitchen and the opportunity to sell at Honey Fest and other events where we sell our honey. For details on the terms for selling honey see our Consignment Guidelines. (you will have to volunteer at a few events).


If you’re trying to make a little money with beekeeping you should consider the $100 Beekeeper membership. It includes all of the benefits of the Hobbyist level plus we’ll do everything we can to help your business thrive. Read more about membership benefits here.
You’ll be able to list your products and services on our web site and social media channels, link to your own site if you have one, get on our swarm list, and be eligible for speaker and beekeeping opportunities provided by the Guild.


Lifetime membership applies to either the Hobbyist or Professional levels. The benefits are the same, but you’ll never have to pay dues again and you can lock in current pricing.
