Beekeepers of Middle Tennessee (BMT) meet every second Thursday evening from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM at the Agricultural Expo Center in Franklin, TN. The Ag Expo Center if located just off of Interstate 65 at Exit #61. Programs are targeted to provide attendees with timely and factual information on beekeeping techniques and practices. Past programs include basic equipment repair and assembly, chemicals/drugs to treat various honeybee diseases, wax crafts, honey tasting, plant and nectar sources, installing packages and queens and maintaining a glass observation hive. Every meeting allows time for questions and answers, industry updates and specific bee tasks that need to be focused on during the meeting month. BMT has a diverse group of attendees and members, some with over 25 years of experience in keeping honeybees. Many of the attendees are beginners or have only kept honeybees less than 5 years. Several attendees do not keep honeybees but enjoy the hobby and need additional knowledge about honeybees for pollination purposes. Anyone with a desire to learn more about honeybees is invited to attend. A map to the meeting location is provided below.
