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!

Bee Forage Network

BeeForage.com is a free crowd-mapping service based on the Open Source Ushahidi crisis-mapping platform that will graphically present local forage conditions in a manner similar to pollen reports during hayfever season. Local observers - like weather spotters - will report flora in bloom and update the site from their smartphones or tablets in realtime. The mapped data will be available for viewing online as it is entered.
