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!

Kimberly Hagan is am looking for a beekeeper in the Fairlee, Vershire area that might be interested in talking to a classroom, and maybe also doing some letter writing with a class in the next two months - Feb/March/April.

She works for NOFA-VT as an educator/resource person to get farmers and schools and community members connected. She has a teacher at the Westshire school who is studying bees and would like to get a bee person connected with her students.

If you can help her please contact her directly: Kimberly Hagan,
