Beekeeping in Vermont

Beekeeping in Vermont

Longtime Vermont beekeeper Bill Taft died on December 21, 2020. Bill Taft at the South Yard Bill Taft at the South Yard

For close to 40 years, Bill was an accomplished and committed beekeeper, and he would help anyone at any time.

When the South Yard workshops were revived seven or eight years ago, Bill was co-instructor, and his beekeeping experience and wisdom had a positive effect on hundreds of students.

Above all, Bill was a quintessential Vermonter, somewhat of an endangered species these days; and he will be missed.
