This paper debates the means in which the idea of smart farming can be enhanced using beekeeping technologies in the sub-region of mid-north Uganda, as confidence in the budding of smart farming to bolster sustainable development provides way. Inside the familiar writings, there is abundant discussion of the pressure between realizing economic development as well as ensuring that there is sustainable growth, however, this discussion has seldom been stretched to bee-keeping in a less-developing country. More serious versions have occasionally been embraced in an all-encompassing outlook. A case study of one bee-keeping farm is selected to explore the prospect of smart farming through bee-keeping. It is apparent that this fluctuates significantly consistent with the level of technology adopted. No matter by what method smart farming is assembled, nevertheless, the degree to which its pathways offer it with some amount of reliance is determined by a comprehensive array of elements comprising availability of resources, readiness of the farmer, level of supports offered to the farmer, and ability to adopt the preferred technology. It is thus established that enhancing smart farming through bee-keeping technologies can be principally stimulating for farmers in the study area though the socioeconomic anxieties lie with obtaining initial investment capitals.
