The Beekeepers Association of the Ozarks is a non-profit organized November 11, 1974, and was formed to engage in activities promoting the common interest of beekeeping and the general welfare of the honey bee. Currently we have over 200 members that cover Greene and the surrounding counties.
Our main goal is to provide information, education, and service to the area. Some of the functions we offer are basic beekeeping courses which is designed to get a person started in beekeeping. We attend the local fairs and farming functions and provide a place where the general public can ask questions and get information. Our members often volunteer in the public schools to do presentations for our children. We also provide swarm removal of honey bees to the public usually at no charge.
Lastly we promote and sell honey to the public and along with other hive products like beeswax, candles and many other items made from the hive. We meet the 4th Tuesday of every month. We start Q&A at 6:00 pm with the meeting to follow. Other events are announced at meetings and on the website.
