John G. and Corinne Smith own and operate Central Beekeepers Supply LLC in Russellville, Arkansas. We sell beekeeping supplies and tools, protective clothing, honey, beeswax and accessories.
We have a passion for beekeeping! John's dad, John E., was a lifetime beekeeper. He began robbing bee trees and taking the loot (honey and honeycomb) home to his dad, when he was a small child. He passed down the art and passion for beekeeping to John. John E. is in heaven now. Oh how I wish he were here sitting in one of the rocking chairs on our shop porch to visit with beekeepers. What a treasure that would be!
When you visit our shop, you will notice we always have two small helpers, are daughters. Depending on the season, you may also see some recruited help, my parents and John's mom. We truly are a family business! We offer a level of customer service that only a small business can.
A family legacy
We love what we do! It is a pleasure for us to operate Central Beekeepers Supply. And that's what you will experience when doing business with us. We want to help you be successful in your beekeeping ventures. If we can help in any way, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!
