CIBA has been promoting beekeeping and honey bees since 1947!
With over 100 members, CIBA serves beekeepers no matter the stage of their beekeeping journey - embarking on this adventure, enjoying the craft for decades or gaining livelihood as a commercial beekeeper.

Looking for More Beekeepers!
Ready to Join CIBA?
You certainly don't want to miss our next field day! Pictured is our 2018 field day at Spring Valley Honey Farms near Perry, Iowa. Kurt Bronnenberg, our host at this field day, is a commercial beekeeper and has been managing bees for 32+ years. This is just a sampling of the club offerings!
Membership dues fund our website, provide educational opportunities afforded all beekeepers through this site, meetings, field days and winter seminars as well as various community services. To continue the support that we provide beekeepers, we need YOUR SUPPORT! CIBA pays speakers that we enlist at our meetings and seminars for presentations and expenses!
Make a beeline to join, as there is much in store for you in 2021!
