Description of Proposed Guidance Document Changes
The 2020 Session of the General Assembly revised the Beehive Distribution Program (Chapter 407 of the 2020 Acts of Assembly) to require the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) to accept applications for beehive units for a period of not less than 15 days and to select individuals receiving beehive units at random from the eligible applications received during the application period. The General Assembly also clarified that an individual registered with the VDACS as a beekeeper may apply for no more than three beehive units per household per year. VDACS has revised this guidance document to reflect these amendments to the Beehive Distribution Program and to update the application process accordingly.
