We harvest honey in late June and September. Although we get hundreds of pounds of honey it is usually sold out in a few weeks.
I took the sign down.
I checked and there was little or no honey in the hives. A few frames had a little honey, but most were dry or had “nectar”, which is uncapped honey that is watery and will go bad if I bottle it.
I will try again in another month or so. Maybe this time the bees will cooperate.

238 Germonds Road, West Nyack, NY.
Less than two miles from the Palisades Mall in Rockland County, NY there are about 200,000 busy bees making honey. Twice a year I go into my back yard and harvest the honey from my hives. I separate the honey from the comb, strain it and bottle it.
My honey is undiluted, uncooked, un-fiddled with. It is 100% honey from my hives. You can stop by and meet the bees before you buy. The honey is all natural, and I don’t medicate my bees. You can even see the tiny pieces of white beeswax that float to the top, something that you will never see in the heavily processed imported honey that you get from the supermarket.
Stop by and honk or ring the bell. If I am at home and have honey, you’ll see the sign at my driveway.
My first 3 hives, purchased in 2009, are named after my Mother and Aunts. They are Connie, Ethel and Martha.
Here is a picture of Connie (the hive) from last winter.
