We offer a small quantity of blue ribbon local natural raw honey each year at Heyser Farms
farm stand in Colesville, Marland. We have bee yards at Heysers
and other places in Montgomery County and Howard County, Maryland.
Heysers has wonderful produce all year, and is the home of Great Shoals Winery
raise and sell honeybee queens. In spring 2014 we offer early
queen cells to experienced beekeepers who purchase in quantity as soon
as the weather permits, and open mated local queens as soon as the
sufficient drones emerge to make mating possible. Our mother
queen stock are selected exceptional producers that have overwintered
here in Maryland, and custom artificially inseminated queens from VP
Queens in Frederick, Maryland. Queens are available by
appointment (send an email to the address above) and for pickup at
Heyser Farms, at beekeepers meetings, and by mail. We expect
to have queens available for over-the-counter purchase at Heyser's,
with up to date availability visible on our queen cage webcam.
Queens are raised by the Doolittle method as taught by Marla Spivak at the University of Minnesota.
If you are looking for queens in quantity, please contact us by email now.
