Now Accepting Sponsor A Hive Applications For 2020!

We are now accepting applications for our 2020 Sponsor A Hive Program!  If you’re interested in hosting a bee hive on your property next season, this is the program for you.  For a nominal fee, you get your very own hive placed on your property from April through August, we do all of the maintenance and you get to keep some of the honey!  For full details and to fill out an application, visit our APPLICATION PAGE.

Welcome to Victory Garden Apiary, located on the former Reynolds Victory Garden in beautiful Princess Anne, MD.  Our number one goal is preservation of the honeybee colonies in our area and public education on honeybees.  If you have honeybees on your property and need them safely removed, you’ve come to the right place!  We also sell honeybee colonies, honey, beeswax and bee products to support our cause.  Future plans include guided apiary tours and possibly a small honey tasting area.  If you’re interested in checking us out, please contact us for information!

Since we collect bees throughout the season, they're not always fully prepared for winter. In this video, we demonstrate one of the many methods to add supplimental food to a hive that needs a little boost. ...

Checking in on food stores today. Added some fondant to a few hives. You've got to move fast on cold days to keep them from getting too chilly.

We received our first dusting of snow for the season today. The trees behind the hives kept the snow off the boxes. We'll be installing some additional wind breaks very soon to keep the driving winter winds at bay the rest of the cold season.

It's cold and breezy today in the apiary. The bees are clustered up in their hive boxes to keep warm. Sometimes it's hard to believe a place that buzzes with so much activity in the summer can be this quiet.

A VERY severe storm tore through our area last night and tossed debris and tree branches all over the apiary. Luckily, despite wind that blew over buildings near the coastline, our hives are all upright and water tight.

Tonight is our first freeze warning of the season. It begins. We'll closely monitor everyone throughout the cold weather months to ensure they don't run out of food and have what they need to stay warm enough. The rest is up to the bees.

These ladies had a yellow garden spider build a web across their entrance earlier this season. Their response was to make a new entrance on the opposite side by chewing through the bottom board.
