SC Mid-State Beekeepers Association
Mid-State Beekeepers Association is your local organization for beekeeping in the South Carolina Midlands. Membership is $10 annually for single members, $15 annually for a family.
The objective of this nonprofit organization is to educate, support, and foster the skills of beekeepers using current best management practices, to share experiences and methods on improving honey production for back yard beekeepers and businesses, and provide the members of the association an opportunity to purchase honey bees and queens. The association will also inform and educate the public on the importance of honey bees for pollination, food, and safe pesticide usage via community outreach and other events.
Community Outreach promotes public awareness and education about honey bees and the many benefits they bring to our community and lives. Events such as the state fair, talking to students in schools, selling honey at the farmer's market, visiting libraries and other events are just some of the ways we educate the public.
Join us the First Tuesday of Every Month at 6:30pm!
"I joined the Mid-State Beekeepers Association in November 2022 because I was exploring the idea of becoming a beekeeper. I was nervous and clueless, but the members of MSBA were so supportive and helpful. They taught me everything I needed to know. They provided me with resources, such as newsletters, classes and community outreach events. I learn so much ... Thanks to MSBA, I have become a confident and successful beekeeper. I am proud to be a part of this amazing organization."
