Welcome to CABA
The Capital Area Beekeepers Association supports beekeeping and bee education in the Louisiana Capital Area. We meet every second Tuesday of the month to network, to discuss best practices and common issues that are affecting bees. Our membership is committed to preservation and sustainability of the honey bee as a pollinator and producer of agricultural, industrial, medicinal and consumer friendly products through our beekeeping community.
If you want to become a beekeeper, join our monthly membership meetings, training at our CABA apiary. Are you interested in saving the honey bee, join us and help "save the bees."
Need some help, request an apiary visit, beekeeping mentor or interested in having CABA speak to your class, group or event reach out to us at a monthly meeting.

Preorder live bees and queens for Spring 2024 from CABA's commercial beekeepers.
We encourage you to buy local from our local commercial beekeepers who have supported CABA over the years. They are all experienced and well-respected breeders with a variety of options to pick from this year. You are welcome to pre-order online for April 2023 pickup at their apiaries. CABA encourages you to attend the February and March club meetings to meet them and get to know them.
Pre-order online here and invoice will be generated or contact them directly. Payments will be made directly with the suppliers. You will pick up your bees at their apiaries when the bees are ready in April.
CABA is providing the opportunity to buy local, build relationships and learn from our most experienced members.
