He maintains hives in his backyard in Camden and at a location at Lake Wateree and several other locations. Richards primary bee yard is also one of only two "Certified Naturally Grown" apiaries in South Carolina
Vice President - Alex "Hick" Etters
Hick has been keeping bees for many years and he is one of the unofficial "go to" guys of the Wateree Beekeepers Association. When folks have questions, they often pick up the phone and call Hick. It took us awhile, but we eventually talked Hick into doing presentations in front of the group to share his years of knowledge. He and his wife Christine were charter members of the group.
