    The link to the Tennessee Apiary Act of 1995 in post #1 is no longer functional - it appears as though the state website has been reorganized. Here is an updated link:

    Here is a link to all of the information that TN currently has available on their site regarding beekeeping, including the form to register your apiary (whether it is one hive or 1K).

    I submitted registration form a couple months ago & hadnt Hurd back, until at our last association meeting (naba) our attorney spoke about legal issues, etc & I asked how long does it take to receive notification on your app. At break I had several people come up to me that had the same problem. That was a Sunday. Monday I got a call from county agent & it was all cleared up. Turns out that our association had donated bee hives to the new convention center downtown last year & they're app hadn't been approved either. Our agent is a nice guy & I know over worked. I offered to help as a volunteer but they can't do it. He did tell me that our app was valid from the earliest date we have a copy of. So be sure to make a copy for your records.

    The State apiarist's turnaround for registrations is very, very slow. But yes, he confirmed that they count them effective as of the date you filed, not the date they get around to processing your forms. They will eventually send you a confirmation notice.

    Tennessee only has one apiarist for the whole state so you can imagine that he's slammed. he's a great guy to work with but you have to keep in mind he stays swamped. its true it can take a while to get your registration confirmation letter back but they go by the application date. your registration is good for 3 years so keep track of when you need to renew - if you dont, you'll lose your registration number and for those of us you mark their equipment that's a pain, not to mention having to change your bee yard signage
