We are Three Rivers Beekeepers

We are a fast-growing beekeeping club located in St. Peters, Missouri. Three Rivers Beekeepers’ mission is to provide fresh, creative and inspiring educational programs with a refreshing atmosphere of friendship and camaraderie. We inform our local communities about honey bee and beekeeping-related issues while providing a source of information about our industry and hobby.

We serve beekeepers from the eastern Missouri counties of St. Charles, St. Louis, Jefferson, Lincoln, Franklin, Warren, Montgomery, and Pike, in addition to many western Illinois counties around the St. Louis region.

Why are we called Three Rivers Beekeepers?

Our club headquarters is located only a few miles from three of the most important agricultural rivers in North America. The Mississippi, Missouri, and Illinois Rivers flow nearby. As a result, our fertile soil supports a rich array of crops. Since honey bees are vital to our farms, without honey bee pollination, agriculture here would fail. To this end, Three Rivers Beekeepers is committed to conservation and a healthy honey bee population!

The Benefits of Local Honey

Local Honey for saleBuying local honey promotes the health of our ecosystem in a major way! Bees pollinate local plant life, which in turn becomes a vital link in crop production.  Also, honey is used for cooking and is known for many health benefits. Beekeepers work diligently to ensure the health of our local bees, and you can support them by buying local, delicious honey.
