Swan's Honey proudly offers a variety of services, products, and classes that support farmers and our fellow beekeepers in the state of Maine. Please read about them below and use our contact us page to get in touch.
Pollination: Swan's Honey offers pollination services for fruit, berry, and vegetable crops. We are able to provide pollination from late April on in Maine locations, and December through April in Georgia locations. Prices vary according to crop, location, and pickup/dropoff situations. Please contact us with specific questions about your pollination needs.
Bee equipment: Swan's Honey offers a full line of beekeeping equipment. We are a dealer for Mann Lake Bee Supply, Humble Abodes woodenware, Hampshire Hive woodenware, and Dadant. We are also a dealer for Gamber Container and place large orders of glassware several times year, which allows us to offer both low prices and variety. While we do not ship bee equipment to customers, we are happy to help you find what you need and can arrange to have large orders pulled and ready for you to pick up. We also offer queen bees for sale during the summer months at our store in Albion.
Education/Classes: Swan's offers both beginning and advanced beekeeping classes throughout the year at our Albion location. We update our website and our Facebook page with the dates for upcoming classes and events. We also are available at various times to speak to bee clubs, state meetings, and any other group that has a sincere interest in bees and beekeeping. Please contact us with your speaking requests and questions.
Nucs of bees: Swan's offers starter hives of bees every spring. Our nucs are 5 frame starter hives with an established, proven queen. The price for 2020 is $170. We are currently taking names for our list and will begin taking deposits in January.
Private label work: We offer custom bottling for businesses and individuals. We can offer both the honey and the jar with your own label, or work with your own honey, containers, and labels. We provide a quality product with a fast turn around time.
