There is no minimum dues requirement for apiary certification. We recommend $200 per year for those who can afford it, but we only require that each CNG beekeeper give some amount, as they can, in recognition of the fact that natural beekeepers are playing an important role protecting honey bees, and very few are deriving any significant income from their apiary. We want beekeepers to be able to participate and highlight their commitment to natural practices so more people understand and appreciate why they should be choosy about where they get their honey – and all their food!
