Maryland Bees for Sale and Beekeeping Supplies

Bees for Sale and Beekeeping Supplies in Maryland

Known as the Chesapeake Bay State, among other nicknames, Maryland is considered one of the original Thirteen Colonies and birthplace of religious freedom in America. Found in the Mid-Atlantic region of the country, this state is full of historic towns along the Chesapeake Bay, such as Saint Mary’s, which was Maryland’s first colonial settlement and original capital. Aside from its incredible past, many who reside or visit here also enjoy its sandy dunes in the east, low marshlands and large bald cypress by the Chesapeake Bay, and pine groves in the mountains to the west. There is so much to appreciate in this wonderful state, which is why beekeeping has also been around in Maryland for over a century. We truly support beekeepers by supplying packaged bees for sale, as well as beekeeping supplies for your backyard beehive or commercial beekeeping business.

At Mountain Sweet Honey Company, we are dedicated to offering customers our high-quality honey bees, beekeeping supplies, and superb customer service. Our apiaries are in the beautiful northeast Georgia mountains, and we ship bees each week from mid-March to May. Whether you’re an experienced beekeeper or a newbie, we have all the beekeeping supplies you will ever need.

About us

Mountain Sweet Honey was a longtime dream before it became what it is today. In fact, it wasn’t long before Mountain Sweet Honey Company shifted gears from hobby to a full-time business. As the demand for local honey grew, so too did our hive collection. By the time we were celebrating our second year in business, we had begun selling honey bees and some beekeeping items. But one thing never changed, and that is our focus to provide chemical-free bees.

We strongly believe in our mission to offer quality bees and beekeeping supplies, good advice to beekeepers, and to always finish our orders with excellent customer service.

Mountain Sweet Honey Company became the #1 shipper of honey bees in the east coast and midwest in 2017. We mostly attribute our growth over time to loyal repeat customers, our understanding of the logistics of shipping honey bees, and our hardworking employees who have helped make this all possible.

If you’re a beginning beekeeper, or simply interested in learning more about what it takes to be a beekeeper, contact us today at (706) 886-1322 and our customer service representative will assist you.

We are located at 758 Georgia Highway 184, Toccoa, GA 30577.
