After starting beekeeping in 2007, by December 2010, Bobby Torbush was voted Beekeeper of the Year by Coweta Beekeepers Association. He became president of the club in 2011 and served for two years. During the course of his presidency he earned his Journeyman certificate in the University of Georgia Beekeeping program. By May 2015, he accomplished his goal of receiving his Master Beekeeper rank in the University of Georgia Beekeeping program. He currently serves the Coweta Beekeepers Association as their Education Coordinator and runs their Introduction to Beekeeping Class.
Although a hobbyist beekeeper, he has enjoyed visiting bee yards all over the world to compare beekeeping practices with those in Georgia. Of course, that includes collecting honey from many countries also!
