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!

Help for a Summer School Program

VBA has been contacted by a school group interested in beekeeping:

"We are designing a farm to table theme for our summer school program. We will have a small group (approximately 5) students and were wondering if you could recommend someplace that we could tour to see bees in action. We are based out of East Randolph in central Vermont. Do you know of anyone close by who might be willing to spend some time with us?"
