Susan Crihfield’s home in South Crossett doesn’t seem that busy even though she’s got half a million guests at any given time.
A local beekeeper, Crihfield and her husband James raise bees at their residence in South Crossett. They have approximately twelve hives there, and around 40 hives total.
The Crihfields are members of the Southeast Arkansas Beekeepers Association, (SABA) which is a local branch of the Arkansas Beekeepers Association. The ABA is a statewide organization that provides, among other things, a way for local beekeepers to stay connected with others around the state. The organization’s mission statement includes the goal to “increase the public’s awareness of the importance of honey bees and to encourage fact based effective management of hives.”
