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!

Website Updates Comingvba2sm

The VBA website is getting a makeover. In addition to a new look, members will soon have the ability to renew their membership online and prospective members will be able to join the Vermont Beekeepers Association by paying with a credit card.

VBA members got the opportunity to vote on two prospective designs for the new site at the Vermont Farm Show as part of the VBA's Winter Meeting. The winning choice is shown here.
