Johnny Thompson is the owner of Broke-T Farms in Neshoba County, Mississippi. His apiary currently consists of approximately 750 hives for honey production and 1400 mating nucs used in the spring for queen production. Hives overwinter in Neshoba County where they build up on wildflowers and clover and produce a spring honey crop. In early June the hives are moved to the MS Delta to make a summer honey crop on Soybeans. Some stay in the Delta to make a fall crop while others are moved back home to make a fall crop.
Johnny is a currently serving as President of the Mississippi Beekeeping Association as well as the Chair of the Beekeeping Commodity Committee for Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation.
