The Williamson County Area Beekeepers Association provides area beekeepers with the opportunity to share information with other hobby or commercial beekeepers. The association also promotes the benefits of bees and beekeeping for the local community whether you are involved in backyard gardening or large scale agricultural operations. We also sponsor youth scholarships to foster interest and develop future beekeepers.
Our next meeting is on Thursday May 26th, 2016
