Beekeeping in Vermont...

A new book has been added to the library: The Thinking Beekeeper: A Guide to Natural Beekeeping in Top Bar Hives, by VBA member Christy Hemenway.tbhivebook

This book is an easy reading, basic introduction for the new beekeeper who is interested in treatment-free beekeeping in top bar hives. Bee biology, top bar hive setup, inspections, over-wintering, harvesting, pests and diseases are reviewed.

This book or others can be checked out by going to the Library section of the Members Only page on this site and selecting “Contact the Librarian.”

The VBA Library will be at the upcoming winter meeting and items will be available for borrowing by current VBA members.

If you currently have a library item checked out, members can return it to the library at the meeting.

If you have a personal beekeeping book that is gathering dust, please consider donating it to the library.
