The Eastern Missouri Beekeepers Association (EMBA) is a volunteer-based organization that trains beginning and advanced beekeepers, promotes beekeeping within the region; and provides networking opportunities for beekeepers, old and new.

Located in St. Louis, Missouri, the EMBA began in 1939 when a group of beekeepers in the St. Louis area got together to share their best practices, learn how to improve their success rate, and make friends with others who shared their beekeeping interests.

It has continued ever since as a vital and growing community of beekeepers, now in its’ 84th year.


Membership has it's benefits and joining is easy and inexpensive!


We value education and group activities! View our calendar for upcoming events.
