Local Queens

Our queens are raised locally in Maryland. Our stock improvement goals are: mite and disease resistance (VSH), with high honey production, and gentleness. We make every effort to produce and sell only quality queens.

The mother queens are instrumentally inseminated breeder queens from reputable honey bee breeders, such as Dr. John Harbo and Adam Finkelstein (VP Queen Bees), who have extensive backgrounds in bee biology and genetics. We also use survivor queens that have proven their worthiness as breeders (survived at least two winters without treatments, high honey production and gentle). To minimize inbreeding and to maximize genetic diversity we add new stock each year to our breeding program.

Our apiary is inspected by Maryland Department of Agriculture each year. Also we participate in the National Honey Bee Survey, sponsored by USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS), which includes molecular and visual testing.
