Cheatham County Beekeepers

We’re an enthusiastic bunch in Middle Tennessee with a common passion for bees and beekeeping. Please see our calendar for meeting times. Most months we meet at the Cheatham County Public Library in Ashland City. Occasionally, we meet elsewhere when the library is unavailable. Everyone is welcome to attend and we appreciate your interest in our website!

Got a Swarm?

If you’ve got a swarm of honeybees please contact us immediately. We will remove the swarm at no cost however, donations are certainly accepted and appreciated.

Why Local Beekeeping Makes Sense


We are a local resource for helping educate the Cheatham County community on the importance and sustainability of honeybees. As a member of our organization, you have access to a wealth of information and experience.


Seventy out of the top 100 human food crops — which supply about 90 percent of the world’s nutrition — are pollinated by bees. Source: There has never been a more critical time to get involved with beekeeping.


Beekeeping is a rewarding hobby that has a direct impact on the local community while providing years of family-oriented activity. While it does require an initial commitment to learning, we are all available to assist you.
