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!

The "Buzz" at the Lodge at Otter Creek

Several weeks ago we were contacted by Sara Wool from The Lodge at Otter Creek, a Bee-11-300x225senior living community in Middlebury. She wanted to know if anyone might be interested in establishing a small bee yard on their property as a possible learning experience for the community's residents.

VBA member John Mailloux followed up and will be providing a community demonstration on May 22nd. You can read about it (and the "Vermont Hive") on the Lodge at Otter Creek's blog.
