Lake Cumberland Beekeepers Association was chartered in 2004 by a small group of Pulaski County beekeepers who met on the 3rd Monday of each month at the Pulaski County Extension Office to talk about honeybees and exchange information about beekeeping. This small group has grown into a much larger group of more than 70 beekeeping operations during the past 12 years. Members meet at 6:30 on the 3rd Monday of all months except November and December in the basement of the Pulaski Extension Office for educational programs to enhance their beekeeping skills. There is a question/answer session beginning at 6:00 on meeting nights to give the new beekeepers some much needed individual attention. Recently LCBA members approved in their association by-laws the following objectives:

  • To inform members about honeybees and beekeeping
  • To provide a forum for training in the art of beekeeping, the production of honey, and making of other hive products
  • To inform the public about the importance and contribution of honeybees to the welfare of all people
  • To encourage others to become members of Lake Cumberland Beekeepers Association or “Friends of Bees”
  • To further the advancement of scientific and practical apiculture
  • To promote legislation and controls to protect and assist beekeeping as an industry and/ or hobby in KY
