South Carolina Honored Beekeepers

South Carolina pursue greatness.  In many ways we recognize each beekeeper that have risen to the top.  Each year, SC takes submissions from across the state to name SC Beekeeper of the Year and Junior Beekeeper of the Year.  We also recognize the Clemson Extension Agents that support our beekeepers.  We strive for excellence in jarring our honey and rendering wax.
