Please consider joining our discussion group on Facebook.  Search for Lower Alabama Beekeepers Association and look for the picture of the bee on the comb (like you see above).

The Lower Alabama BeeKeepers Association (LABA) was formed in November 2014 by veteran beekeepers Mr. Nolen Ballard and Mr. Fred Harrison.  

Together they represent over 75 years of beekeeping experience.

Their passion is to pass down to the next generation the art of beekeeping.
