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!

We wanted to remind you of some of the features available to you on the VBA website...

Under the Resources tab you'll find links to clubs, general information and other services including Newsfeeds on bee-related topics. Just added is the RSS feed of Kim Flottum's Catch the Buzz newsletter... updated automatically.

Speaking of RSS feeds you may not know what that is. A RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feed is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works—such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video—in a standardized format.

You can subscribe to them by using your web browser or email client software. The nice thing about RSS is it does the work for you. You don't need to go hunting for information - it updates itself. And we've got RSS working for you throughout the VBA website.

Simply look for this icon 16px-Feed-icon_svg on various pages throughout the site, click, and you've subscribed to the content on that page. Since the VT Bee Blog gets updated quite frequently you might want to subscribe to that RSS feed.

VBA Members can access our online Forums that allow you to talk with other members. A virtual mentoring tool, so to speak.
