Stormy Acres Bee Farm is a small farm let and home to Storm and Elaine. We are located in Bowie, Maryland. With just a few acres we raise chickens, ducks, geese, guineas, a couple of sheep, and lots of bees.

Honey Production

Want honey?  Bees produce honey from the sugary secretions of plants (floral nectar) or from secretions of other insects by regurgitation, enzymatic activity, and water evaporation.  Honey is collected from all the colonies/hives.  Our honey is local and has never been filtered.


Interested in beekeeping?  Beehives require management and good stewardship, which take time and knowledge.  Beekeeping or apiculture requires periodic inspections of bee hives to make sure the queen is laying eggs, workers are building up honey stores, and the colony has enough space to expand.  Learn the basics of beekeeping with a Master Beekeeper.

Bee Events

Want to learn more about bees, beekeeping or honey? We are available to come to your home, office or school to tell you more about bees, beekeeping and honey. Host a party with your guests and we can provide a short demonstration on bees or conduct honey tasting with various honey varietals. Each honey has a distinguishable taste, flavor, and aroma.

Swarm Removal

Who do you call to remove honey bees? Call a qualified beekeeper and then sit back and admire and appreciate the beauty of watching the bees. As a Master Beekeeper I can often remove clusters simply by brushing or shaking the bees gently into a box and carry them away. I will relocate honey bees and give them a new home.


or “bee therapy” (from the Latin apis which means bee) is the medicinal use of products made by honeybees.  Products of the Honeybee include bee venom, honey, pollen, propolis, and beeswax.  We can even provide bee hive air therapy (breath in the vapors and smell of a honeybee hive.  Therapies involving the honeybee have existed for thousands of years and some may be as old as human medicine itself. The ancient rock art of early hunter-gatherers depicts the honeybee as a source of natural medicine.  Want to learn more about Apitherapy?


Beekeepers use a polariscope to see inside of a jar of honey. Without getting into physics of light, basically polariscope manipulates light in a special way to remove background glare, allowing fine details to appear from inside the honey.  Normally regular sunlight or room light hides those details.  I have now been constructing polariscopes using high quality polarizing filters and two dimmable LED bulbs.  The polariscope is essential in becoming a honey judge or determining any defects in your honey.  With one of my polariscopes you can look for honey, crystals, dust, bubbles, foam, bits of wax or other items.  Call me if you would like me to build one for you.
