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!

 

Want to join the club? Download a 2018 Memphis Area Beekeepers Registration Form, and mail it to us (address is on the form), or bring it with your payment to our next meeting.

These will include MABA meetings, short courses, field days, and other beekeeping events throughout the Mid-South that may be of interest to members and the public.
