Purchase UMD Honey
The UMD Honey Bee Lab is carrying on a proud tradition of producing and selling honey from research colonies located on campus and at several Maryland farms. More than 150 colonies are utilized each year for honey bee health, epidemiological and best management research to inform both local and national beekeeping practices. Some of these apiaries are used specifically for extension and teaching, capitalizing on our expertise to share and engage with the strong community of Maryland beekeepers.
Due to COVID-19, pick up of honey orders will be arranged by contacting Eric at email@example.com.
Our 2021 sale dates are set for January and will take place at the Plant Sciences Loading dock. We will sell honey each month with the specific times listed here as we update.

Honey bees are a vital agricultural component and the only managed pollinator in the US. More than 100 important crops are pollinated by honey bees. Honey bees forage on pollen and nectar sources around our Maryland farms, enjoying a wide range of wildflowers and flowering trees, which creates a superb and flavorful honey. Important floral sources for our bees include Maple, Tulip Poplar, Black Locust, clover, aster, and goldenrod. All honey sale proceeds directly support our research.
