2023 Availability on NUCs listed on Products Page
The Beekeeper's Farm began in 2017 when I took a beekeeping class and now in 2023, I have established and maintained 40 hives located on Loudoun County farms that are either certified organic or actively practicing organic methods. You can REALLY taste the difference in our honey!
I also raise my own bees and sell nucs. My family enjoys helping with the extracting, processing, bottling, labeling and selling of the honey and products at the Farmer's Markets but most of all they enjoy being the quality control staff tasting the honey!
To support our family-owned small business, come visit us at the Buchanan Hall Farmer's market in Upperville, VA every Wednesday night 4:30-7:30pm at the Caterpillar Creek Farm stand or find our honey at The Whole OX in Marshall, VA and The Woolley Fox in Middleburg, VA. We love to support other local small businesses and hope you will too!
The best compliment we receive is our faithful repeat customers and we thank you so much for your support in our small, local, family-owned business!
The Beekeeper's Farm gives back by donating a portion of our honey to the JK Community Farm providing fresh farm market produce (and our honey!) to people with food insecurity.
The Beekeeper’s Farm will be adding solitary bees to our Loudoun County bee yards located at the JK Community Farm, The Beekeeper’s Farm, and Willowsford Farm. This spring the solitary bee program will start with 100 Mason Bee cocoons (hatching at the end of March) followed by a summer time start of 200 Leafcutter Bee cocoons (hatching early June) These solitary bees are super cross pollinators, very gentle, easy to raise, and fun to watch. Be sure to look for them if you visit the above the farms this year. For those families that are interested in bees but do not want the cost and maintenance of keeping honey bee hives the Mason and Leafcutter Bees are an excellent choice to raise in your own backyard. There are solitary bee house which you can make or purchase, the bees are docile, and helps a family to strengthen their connections to nature. While solitary bees do not provide a honey source, The Beekeeper’s Farm has local raw honey available by appointment only at our home apiary.
A great place to start and to help support our solitary bee program is by visiting:
