Honey Extraction

Honey Extraction

Queens Botanical Garden has four active hives with over 80,000 bees!

Each hive produces between 20 and 40 lbs of honey.

In 2018, we only harvested from one hive because we introduced new colonies this year.

Say hello to our honey bees on your next visit at the Garden.
