About Mid-State Beekeepers Association

Mid-State Beekeepers Association (MSBA) is dedicated to advancing the art of beekeeping and assisting the people who pursue this noble and worthwhile venture.

The purpose of the MSBA is to promote interest in honey bees and beekeeping by encouraging healthy beekeeping practices in South Carolina, promote the utilization of honey bees for pollination of agricultural crops, and disseminate useful information about honey bees and beekeeping.
