Bees of the Woods Apiary
Altamont, New York.
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 beeswax candles, biscuits, honey soap, and we're now a dealer in Naked Bee products including hand salve, lip balm, hand cream, and shampoo/conditioner made with honey & beeswax.
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: September 28, 2014
Bees of the Woods employees finished producing 615 lbs of golden, delicious honey, 40, 1lb containers of comb honey, and 60, 8oz round combs of honey this season! It was a record breaking year for our girls. We extracted our first batch of spring honey in early July and it happened to be the best tasting honey we have ever had! We do still have some of this light honey left as well as plenty of recently extracted Fall honey (darker).
Bees of the Woods Apiary will have a tent at the Maple Ski Ridge Fall Festival on Saturday, October 11th. Besides a craft fair, food vendors, and antique dealers, there will be a car show, tractor show, tractor demos, and chairlift & hay wagon rides. You can also join in the fun and participate in a pie eating contest! An all day kids play area will also be setup with a hay maze, bounce house, and more! Come and join us for what is sure to be an awesome event!
We also have a selection of maple syrup, honey, and beeswax candles at Duck Pond Farm at the corner of 158 & 20 in Guilderland! Stop in, grab some homemade ice cream, and pick up your delicious Bees of the Woods honey, syrup, or candles!
