Welcome to Bee County

The mission of  Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service is to improve the lives of people, businesses, and communities across Texas and beyond through high quality, relevant education.   We hope that you will find our services beneficial if you want to learn more about agriculture and natural resources, family and consumer science, and/or 4-H and youth development.  County Extension Agents are available in Bee County with expertise in these program areas to assist you.

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service utilizes local program area committees to gain knowledge of issues or challenges facing residents of Bee County.   Volunteer members of these committees help county agents identify, plan, implement, and evaluate educational programs for the residents of Bee County. Program area committees, Extension Education Clubs, and 4-H Clubs are always in need of new volunteers.

Thank you for being a part of our family!!!
