The South Carolina logo scbaBeekeepers Association is a private non-profit organization dedicated to education and advocacy ensuring that South Carolina beekeepers have the information and tools they need to meet the challenges of modern beekeeping.

Our mission also includes public education as we strive to provide individuals, and public and private organizations with factual and up to date information about the honey bee, beekeeping, and its importance to our food supply. We have 19 local beekeeping associations in South Carolina with members who are ready willing and able to talk to you about beekeeping in our state and if you ask, might be willing to tell you where you can get good, wholesome, local honey.

This is a website dedicated to helping beekeepers all over South Carolina stay informed with the business of beekeeping and honey Bees. If you are visiting this page to understand more about honey bees you are in the right place too.
