Our Association

The Finnish Dark Bee Keepers’ Association was founded 2017.

The current president of the association is Lassi Kauko.

There are about thirty of beekeepers with dark bees in Finland. The total number of colonies with dark bees is a few hundreds.

The sudden death of Aimo Nurminen, our leading breeder was a great loss for the association. We continue in his important work for the preservation of the Apis mellifera mellifera species on the territory of Finland.
