About Bee Daddies Apiaries

Bee Daddies Apiaries are a group of beekeepers keeping honey bees in Bethesda, Maryland, USA. The principal beekeepers are Rob Jenson and Dan Fisher.

Our goal is a sustainable group of honey bee colonies for the enjoyment and education of our friends and neighbors, and to provide a positive environmental impact by pollinating the trees and flowers where our colonies reside.

We sell raw local honey to support the care and feeding of our honey bees.

We currently have liquid honey available for sale. We have sold out of comb honey.

Local Honey for Sale!

We currently have local honey for sale. (Updated May 16, 2020). Contact us by email: info@bee-daddies-apiaries.com or leave a voice mail message at 240-242-9622 .

We can arrange for “contactless” pickup or delivery … see below.

All the honey that Bee Daddies Apiaries sells is “wildflower honey” made by the honey bees that reside in the Bannockburn neighborhood of Bethesda, Maryland.

Our liquid honey won Fourth Prize in its class (Amber honey) at the 71st Annual Montgomery County Agricultural Fair in 2019!

We can package your honey in any of the following containers:

  • 1 lb. (454 gram) “Classic” glass jars ($15.00)
  • 1 lb. (454 gram) “Classic” plastic squeeze bottles ($15.00)
  • 13 oz. (369 gram) hexagonal glass jars ($13.00)
  • 9 oz. (255 gram) hexagonal glass jars ($11.00)
  • 2 oz. (58 gram) hexagonal glass jars (sample/gift size) ($3.00)

We can also provide larger amounts in pint, quart or half-gallon Mason jars. All honey is sold by weight, not volume. Since every batch of honey that the bees make is slightly different, the density will be slightly different. However, for estimating purposes:

  • 1 gallon of honey weighs approximately 12 lb.
  • 1 quart of honey weighs approximately 3 lb.
  • 1 pint of honey weighs approximately 1.5 lb. (24 oz.)
  • 1 cup of honey weighs approximately 12 oz.

We can arrange for contactless delivery at our home in Bethesda, very near Glen Echo Park. If you pick up at our place, we can show you some of the beehives, weather permitting.

We will deliver orders of $25 or more for free to customers in Bethesda. For neighboring communities (Potomac, Rockville, Kensington, parts of Washington DC, Vienna, McLean) we can deliver for a small delivery charge.

We can ship plastic containers anywhere in the USA that is served by UPS. We will charge you what it costs us to ship it to you. Contact us for a price estimate. We will not ship overseas … getting honey through customs is too sticky for us.
