Unofficial BIBBA Pages

Disclaimer... This site is additional to the official version


No malice is intended in the un-officiality of this site, it is hoped that it provides material that is supplementary or of historical relevance.

The menu across the top of the page leads to pages on the official BIBBA website and the upper left hand menu has pages that are additional, should anything on this website differ from the BIBBA version, it must be assumed that the BIBBA version is correct. The upper right menu is useful related links. There are yet more pages about BIBBA on the BIBBA section of the Dave Cushman website.

What is BIBBA?

BIBBA is the acronym of the Bee Improvement and Bee Breeders' Association.

BIBBA was founded in 1964, by Beowulf Cooper, for the conservation, restoration, study, selection and improvement of the native and near-native honeybees of Britain and Ireland (Apis mellifera mellifera L.).

BIBBA is registered with the Charity Commissioners in the UK (Reg No. 273827).

Membership of BIBBA is open to individuals and groups who are interested in producing honey bees of high quality and known pedigree.

BIBBA actively promotes educational workshops on all aspects of bee breeding and the beekeeping manipulations that are required in order to carry out the mechanical aspects of raising queens and getting them mated.

For further information on BIBBA breeding groups and BIBBA workshops, contact Sandra Unwin by Email.
