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 2022 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. Alternatively, you may register online and bring your payment to our next monthly meeting.

 

 

Current members can benefit from many resources, including:

1) Mentorship

2) Borrowing honey extractors during harvest season

3) Inclusion on the Swarm List (List of Independent Beekeepers for Swarm Removals)

4) Monthly newsletters providing timely information on local, state and national beekeeping concerns

5) Monthly general membership meeting, keeping everyone up to date on the art, science, and practice of beekeeping

 

 

We are now on Facebook and Twitter, please follow us! All MABA-sponsored events will be posted here as well as on Facebook and Twitter. 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.
