Vermont Beekeepers Association

Who We Are and What We Do

Vermont Beekeepers AssociationSince 1886 the VBA has promoted the general welfare of Vermont's Honey Industry, while sustaining a friendly body of unity among the state's beekeepers.  

The Vermont Beekeepers Association, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, represents hundreds of beekeepers that raise bees for the love and honey. We’re as diverse as the 246 towns in Vermont, but are unified in our fascination with and affection for bees. Most of us are hobbyists, but there are some “side liners” who try to make a bit of extra income from their 25-200 hives as well as a handful of full-time professionals. Join Today!

Hello all,  I would like to pass on to fellow beekeepers that the Green Mountain Marketplace, in Whitehall NY, a restaurant supply and retail store, has Fondant on Special for January.  A 50 Lb box is $ 32.50, once the sale is off I am told it will increase to about $ 37.00. Pr 50 Lbs.  I think that is a terrific price.  Also they list on their web site 50 Lbs of cane sugar for $ 22.00.  

I just bought some fondant and am waiting for warm weather to see if they need a little boost.  I do not work for or have any affiliation with the store.  

Go on their web site for monthly specials.  

Think Spring !!!!!
