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!

More than Honey

A new film takes another look at bee's place in our world. More than Honey is a film by Markus Imhoof.

"Over the past fifteen years, numerous colonies of bees have been decimated throughout the world, but the causes of this disaster remains unknown. Depending on the region of the world, between 50% and 90% of the bees have disappeared, and this epidemic of colossal violence and breadth is still spreading from beehive to beehive - all over the planet."
