The specialist international beekeeping organisation

The Danish Beekeepers Federation (DBF)

Europe, Denmark

The aim of the organization is to work for the benefit of beekeeping and beekeepers, and especially to promote and teach the beekeeping method developed by Dzierzon.

Founded in 1866, we recently celebrated our 150th jubilee (more in Danish) and have a membership of 5.500 beekeepers, large and small, organized in 80 local branches around the country.

We are currently revising and restructuring our English material and look forward to uploading new files in the future.

Meanwhile, please visit our website for a general outline of Beekeeping in Denmark, including sections on the association’s history and organization; our recommended organic varroa treatment strategy; the special “black bee” on the island of Læsø; and more.
