About Us

Welcome to Southwest Mississippi Beekeepers Association (SW MS Beekeepers).  The organization was formed in April 2013 with the goal of uniting area beekeepers in Adams, Franklin, Amite, Wilkerson, Pike, and Lincoln counties into an organization to benefit new beekeepers and advanced beekeepers.  We do encourage other people in surrounding counties to join us.  We meet at the Franklin County Extension office, located at 20 Walnut St in Meadville, MS on the 3rd Tuesday at 7:00 PM of every month except November and December.   Most of our members are hobbyists and we do have some “professional” beekeepers in the organization.  Through general discussions and other means, we attempt to help all beekeepers.  As we develop our website, please give us feedback and suggestions for improving the information disseminated.   Again, we welcome you to our meetings and welcome to our website.
