Sponsor A Hive Applications For 2021 Coming Soon!

We will soon be 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! 

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 apiary is buzzing with activity today as the bees continue to store as much food as possible away before winter weather arrives.

We definitely need to mow around the hives, but we invite you to enjoy the sights and sounds around the apiary this early September. No voiceover. No soundtrack. It's still hot and the bees are still hard at work. Just bees being bees. ...

You may have noticed we haven't been posting much recently. Jim has been desperately trying to keep up with hive management while also finishing up his final exams for his Master Beekeeper Certification. Today he finally received his certificate and is officially a Cornell University Master Beekeeper!

These bees are doing what's called "washboarding". Researchers have no idea why bees do this. There are a few guesses, most involving some kind of cleaning, but nothing definitive. We know a lot about bees, but there's so much left to learn.

Early morning swarm catch! From the size of this colony, I suspect it's an entire colony that left behind a storm damaged hive rather than an actual swarm cast from a mother colony. I suspect there's a lot of that going on in our area right now.
