Why Become A Member of AHPA?

The American Honey Producers Association has long been committed to upholding the common interest and general welfare of the American beekeeper. It is the only national beekeeping organization that reserves voting rights for beekeepers.

There are many challenges that face the honeybees and beekeepers. The AHPA is continually working on all levels of government to diminish and eliminate these problems. Several issues that the AHPA in the past and currently are working on are:

  • Anti-dumping and adulteration of honey

  • Pesticide issues

  • Funding for the USDA-ARS Bee Research Labs

  • Federal extension apiarists

  • Farm Programs such as ELAP and NAP

  • Disaster Payments

  • Standard of Identity for honey

  • Honey labeling

  • And other items to help further the profitability of the honey producer.

The AHPA pledges to do everything it can to improve the future of beekeeping for all beekeepers, no matter what their size.

Is the American Honey Producers Association for you?

Whether you are a small or large honey producer, a scientist or researcher, or someone with a general interest in bees, we have a membership that is perfect for you.

The AHPA has two different types of memberships: Voting and Non-Voting Memberships.

Our voting membership is strictly for those who own and operate beehives. We are the only national organization who reserves the voting rights exclusively for beekeepers.

Our Non-Voting Membership is for those who may research bees, state/local beekeeping organizations, or individuals with a common interest in beekeeping.

No matter who you are or your involvement in the bee industry, the America Honey Producers Association has a place for you.
