Who We Are
The NORTHWEST branch of the New Jersey Beekeepers Association is a regional organization of anywhere from 80 to 100 bee hobbyist and sideliners (less than 300 hives). Our members generally reside in the Hunterdon, Warren and Somerset counties but membership is not limited to this region of the state.
NWNJBA Scholarships Scholarship funds are available through the NWNJBA for youths interested in the Rutgers Extension Bee-ginner's beekeeping class. If you are interested in submitting a request, or know of a youth with an interest in beekeeping who would like to be considered, submit a two to three paragraph stating your general interest in beekeeping. Submissions can be sent to the NWNJBA President Bob Kloss by clicking this link.
