The Orange Blossom Beekeepers Association (OBBA) is a collective of commercial and avocational beekeepers from across Central Florida. The club strives to mentor novices and to serve as a resource for experienced beekeepers.
In addition, OBBA seeks to educate the public about the importance of bees and beekeeping.
Throughout the year, OBBA conducts interactive workshops in its apiary and brings in expert speakers for monthly club meetings. Also, OBBA attends and hosts educational events throughout Central Florida.
Motto: Creating beekeepers for life
Our Mission: To educate, mentor, assist, inspire, support and promote beekeeping in the state of Florida and beyond.
Join us Thursday July 20th at 7 p.m. for our really fun filled July meeting. As usual, we meet at the Orange County Extension offices located at 6021 South Conway Road, Orlando, FL 32812. We will meet in the auditorium.
This month we will have a black jar honey judging by senior Welsh honey judges Paul Allison and Beth Fox. Bring a small jar, about the size of a baby food jar, with about 3 oz of honey inside. We will wrap it in paper or small bags to make it totally anonymous.
Our Welsh honey judges will show you how they judge honey in a black jar honey show. After the judging you can then taste the honey your self. Then you decide which you like best!
Need beekeeping equipment? Call Shelly and Mario at D&J apiary. Their number is 352-669-4233. Please be sure to pre-order so they can have exactly what you want.
See you on the 20th!
