Want to win a blue ribbon?

We’re looking to see how many club members are interested in participating in the Missouri State Fair’s Apiculture contest. Participants package their honey and hive products to be judged during the fair in August.

If we have enough interest, our blue ribbon winning board members will give you the inside scoop needed to compete.

As we’re getting back to a more normal existence, post Covid times, EMBA’s major programs and events will be on a brief hiatus as we reorganize our structure for 2023 and beyond.


Unfortunately, the EMBA will not be offering nucleus colonies or queens this year to our members.


If you need queens, you can check out Bordelon Apiaries in Louisiana at 337-988-6644. They have been a long-time queen supplier to the EMBA.

Isabee’s in Fenton is also taking orders for bees and queens. You can reach Jane or her staff at 314-894-8737, or visit their website at


In the meantime, you can continue your bee education by attending monthly meetings with the EMBA and St. Louis Beekeepers on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

Meetings will be held at the Powder Valley Conservation Nature Center. Meeting runs from 6:15 pm to 8:15 pm. We hope to see you there!
