Our Kansas Honey Producers Association (KHPA), formerly The Kansas State Beekeepers Association, was started over a 110 years ago for the purpose of promoting good beekeeping practices, to promote honey, to enable beekeepers from various areas to meet and share experiences and ideas, and to publicize the honey bee as an important contributor to the nation's food supply. The date on the association president's gavel for the association's founding is December 30, 1903.
This website serves to inform the public and other fellow beekeepers with industry news, membership information, convention schedules, cooking tips, and contact information.
We will be voting on a new constitution at the spring meeting in Manhattan. Get it here.
