Recently, Greg Lang, the Executive Chef for Killington Resort, contacted the VBA looking for a beekeeper to place hives on the Killington property and if possible for the honey and other products of the hive harvested from them to be displayed, sold and eaten on the property. He says they have a large area with miles of trails that otherwise serve no purpose over the summer months. He says that they use over 100 lbs. of honey per year, it's in different capacities. He hopes to utilize the product in Preston's restaurant - possibly on the breakfast buffet as well which feeds 300-500 people daily through the winter. They currently use Honey Comb, Raw and have even used Bee Pollen. He would also like if put up an information display about the project and bee's in Vermont to help educate their guests.

Please contact him directly at glang@killington.com.

I don't know how good the bee forage would actually be as besides the trails and the golf course, the area is heavily forested (at least that is what a 10 second glance at Google maps suggests). Probably depends on how they maintain the trails during the summer. The really exciting part of this opportunity would be partnering with Killington and getting your brand in front of many visitors.
