The Victorian Apiarists' Association can help all beekeepers regardless of how many hives they own. Whether you are a hobbyist beekeeper with one hive in the backyard, a semi commercial beekeeper that wishes to take the next step towards becoming fully financially dependent on beekeeping or the full time commercial beekeeper, we can help you.
