Welcome to the Memphis Area Beekeepers Association webpages.
We are a club of professionals and amateurs interested in beekeeping in and around the Mid-South. We are a diverse group, the one thing we have in common is that we are interested in bees and beekeeping. Some of us have many hives and others have none. We all love honey and honeybees!
