There are many sources for the beginning beekeeper, and we will try to help you get all the information you need to get started on your way to a productive experience in beekeeping.
On our web site, you will find links to other web sites, books, videos as well as a list of experienced local beekeepers. While all of these sources can help, your local beekeeping organization will most likely prove to be your best source for information and support.
The Southeast Arkansas Beekeepers Association meets on the first Monday of each month at the Crossett Public Library which is located at 1700 South Main Street in Crossett, Arkansas. Come experience one of their meetings, learn a bit more about beekeeping, and meet some really nice folks.
Why local beekeepers? Well, they can provide you with detailed knowledge on the local honey plants, your equipment needs where you live, state laws, and the availability of local bee inspectors. This is also a good place go to find a mentor that can help you as you encounter situations that you are unfamiliar with. You will get the advantage of their years of experience keeping bees in your area.
