The Pawtuckaway Beekeepers' Association is a diverse group of people who meet to learn about, discuss and promote all aspects of beekeeping and honey production. We include hobbyist and commercial beekeepers and those who are interested in becoming beekeepers.
Our meetings are held on the third Monday of the month from 7:00 to 9:00 PM at the Deerfield Community Church, Deerfield, NH. During the summer months we host meetings at various locations in New Hampshire. These special meetings give our members an opportunity to visit apiaries and other locations where beekeeping is an important part of day-to-day operations.
