Opened in 2011, Maryland Honey Company is a small, local, family-owned business located in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Jim Fraser, owner, is a third generation beekeeper, who learned beekeeping from his father at a young age. Jim and his son, Andrew, manage around 150 colonies of honey bees and provide pollination services for local orchards and farms.
As an Eastern Apiculture Society Certified Master Beekeeper since 2014. Jim believes that education is key to successful beekeeping. Speaking to beekeeping classes, beekeeping clubs, civic groups, and customers at his shop allows him to share his knowledge about beekeeping.
Jim is also a Certified Honey Show judge and a former President of the Maryland State Beekeepers Association.
We sell honey bee Nucs and packages, a wide variety of beekeeping supplies, locally produced honey, and bees wax. Honey can be bottled for special occasions, including as wedding favors.
