About Us

Heart of Georgia Beekeepers Association (HoGBA)

We are a local organization that provides support and education to beekeepers and those interested in bees or becoming a beekeeper.

We do this by...

- holding monthly meetings that consist of guest speakers on current beekeeping topics.

- teaching a beekeeping 101 class in the spring before our members would get their nuc of bees.

- offering a Mentorship Program to new beekeepers.

- offering discounted bulk prices on nucs each year.

- advertising our members honey and beekeeping products on our website.

- creating a swarm list of beekeepers that will trap and remove bees.

The Heart of Georgia Beekeepers Association was established in 2008. Our local club first met in Perry, Ga with only 6 members. Today, we have members from all over the middle Georgia area and reach thousands of people through our Facebook page. We currently meeting at Argene Claxton Canning Plant 1701 Houston Lake Road, Perry, GA 31069.

Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of HOGBA (Heart of Georgia Beekeepers Association). We look forward to getting to know you better and providing you with the resources to learn more about bees. Our main goal is to educate and promote the health and well being of the Honey Bee. We will strive to provide you with the information and techniques to become a better beekeeper.
