Moor Bees is for anyone who keeps bees within the Dartmoor National Park.
Moor Bees is open to all beekeepers in the area who would like to work with native and near-native bees, adapted to the climate of Dartmoor. We do not currently have a formal membership scheme, but we encourage membership of BIBBA, the Bee Improvers and Bee Breeders Association, to which we are affiliated.
If you would like to be informed of our activities, please sign up for our free (occasional) newsletter.

Our associated group in Cornwall is BIPCo
- the Bee Improvement Program for Cornwall.
We are part of the Natural Beekeeping Network, which is an informal, international network of beekeepers who take a 'natural' approach to beekeeping, using top bar hives and management strategies that give priority to the bees' way of arranging their nests. Treatments against pests, if used at all, are as natural as possible and no synthetic chemicals are used.
