Sponsor A Hive Applications For 2021!

We are now accepting applications for our 2021 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!

The sun came out today and warmed the hives. The bees took advantage of the mild temperatures to perform their cleansing flights, clean junk out of the hive and even do a little foraging. So far so good this winter. We're ready for spring!...#saveTheBees #beekeeping #bee #beefarm #beekeeper #beesofinstagram #bees #apiary #apiculture #Delmarva #delmarvalous ...

With the cold snap on the way, we checked in on our bees that have been feeding on the extra sugar we provided, just to be sure they have enough. These ladies were a little cranky last time I checked on them, so their sugar ended up on top of the inner cover. This isn't ideal, so today we added sugar under the cover so they don't have to break cluster and can stay as warm as possible while feeding. ....#saveTheBees #beekeeping #bee #beefarm #beekeeper #beesofinstagram #bees #apiary #apiculture #Delmarva #delmarvalous ...

The bees are getting their first major winter storm of the season. We'll check them throughout the day to make sure they can still get air in and out of the hive to keep things dry inside. ...#saveTheBees #beekeeping #bee #beefarm #beekeeper #beesofinstagram #bees #apiary #apiculture #Delmarva #delmarvalous ...

When you see chewed up paper towels at the entrance of a hive, it's a sure sign those bees are feeding on the sugar we added instead of their honey stores. These are the colonies we'll watch closely going forward to make sure they don't starve. ...#saveTheBees #beekeeping #bee #beefarm #beekeeper #beesofinstagram #bees #apiary #apiculture #Delmarva #delmarvalous ...

If you ever see this stuff on your windshield on a mild winter day, you definitely have bees living nearby. Yep, it's bee poo, or "pollen stains" if you prefer a more professional term. Honeybees do not defecate inside the hive, so during cold spells they literally just hold it all in. On mild days, they perform "cleansing flights" so they can take care of business. Unfortunately for me, this commonly happens over my truck....#saveTheBees #beekeeping #bee #beefarm #beekeeper #beesofinstagram #bees #apiary #apiculture #Delmarva #delmarvalous ...

It's warm enough this afternoon that the bees are performing cleansing flights and cleaning junk out of their hives. I even see a little bit of light colored pollen coming in....#saveTheBees #beekeeping #bee #beefarm #beekeeper #beesofinstagram #bees #apiary #apiculture #Delmarva #delmarvalous ...
