Beekeeping in Vermont...
If you happen to bee in Killington on August 8, 11:00 A.M. buzz on over to the Killington Town office to hear Fred teach kids about honeybees, beekeeping, culminating with a fabulous Vermont honey tasting.This is part of the Town of Killington kids summer camp organized by the Town of Killington Recreation Director, Cathy Foutch.

An active member of the Vemont Beekeepers Association, David is known for his love of family,friends, antiques, bees, Hermit Island (Maine), and his dogs, Cooper and Eli. He took great pride in being able to return to live in Vermont after many years away.

Looking for Northern-raised queens or nucs? Supplies are limited but you might want to check with suppliers listed on our revamped Marketplace listings (on the top menu). We're rearranging things a bit to emphasize northern honeybee providers. We've also separated the listings so beekeeping equipment has its own listing.
And we're working on establishing a web store so you can buy VBA hats and books in addition to paying your membership dues online.
