Welcome to
Bees of the Woods Apiary,

Jen Smoking Hive


Bees of the Woods Apiary is run by beekeepers Jennifer Ford & Keith Freeman. We have been keeping bees since 2008.


Our adventure into beekeeping started out when we purchased two packages of bees. Since then we have increased our apiary to approximately 20 hives! Jen enjoys making beeswax candles and mead (honey wine). Keith is around to lift the 60 lb boxes of honey that the bees make and also to build and assemble equipment for the bees as well as making maple syrup every spring.

Our apiary is chemical free. We treat our hives with essential oils and/or essential oil medication to prevent the loss of our bees due to pests, viruses, or diseases and to enhance our honey production.
