Our Bees Love Our Trees


Welcome to Bees of the Woods Apiary & Mallard Pond Maple. We are a small part-time business located in Altamont, NY which focuses on raising bees without the use of pesticides or chemicals.

Besides our locally produced honey we also carry a line of beeswax candles, biscuits, honey soap,  and we also have Naked Bee products including hand salve, lip balm, hand cream, and shampoo/conditioner made with honey & beeswax.

We have added a line of solid perfumes produced especially for us by Fernvale Botanicals in Galway, NY. You can find these perfumes listed on our products page.

Mallard Pond Maple was established in 2012 and focuses on the maple syrup product line of our business. While we currently only carry a limited supply of maple syrup, we will be expanding our product line in the future in hopes of producing maple sugar candy and other maple syrup related products.

Update: October 24, 2016

We have plenty of honey ready to go! Our bees were very productive this summer and managed to produce a decent crop for the season. Though production of our fall honey (really dark) was sparse, they did produce quite a bit of lighter honey from spring that we extracted in July.
While we have a large supply of honey, we cannot say the same for our syrup. Everyone seems to love it so much that our shelves of syrup are almost bare! Check out our maple products page for what is currently available.
