We are the Heart of Illinois Beekeepers Association (HIBA), dedicated to the development of good beekeeping management and practices, the pollination of agricultural crops, the production of honey and honey related food products, and the general education for and about honeybees. HIBA serves Peoria, Tazewell, and Woodford counties, as well as the surrounding areas.
Beekeeping can be an exciting hobby or full blown career. Amateurs and professionals alike meet to discuss the latest in beekeeping, diseases and pests, hive management, honey production, public interest in bees, and Mother Nature.
