About The Essex County Beekeepers’ Association (ECBA)


The Essex County Beekeepers Association, ECBA, is a non-profit educational organization founded in 1923 by local beekeepers in Essex County, Massachusetts interested in sharing their experiences. In 1998, we celebrated the 75th Anniversary of the club and its association with the Topsfield Fair in Topsfield, MA and received international recognition. We are known to have the largest honey show in North America.

This year in 2019 we will celebrate our 96th Anniversary!

All this is made possible by many dedicated members. Our membership consists of all levels of beekeepers, from beginners to experts, amatuers to professionals, children to adults, singles to families. But you don't have to be a beekeeper to join. Come to learn about honey and beeswax! Our strong point is our friendly relations based on active participation.
