Don’t expect any harvestable honey from a new colony in its first year.  From then on, how much honey you will get is dependent on where you keep your bees and how well you care for them.   In Montgomery County, MD, we expect a well-tended beehive to produce between 30 and 50 pounds of honey a year.  Although we sell much of our honey for $8.00 to $12.00 per pound, few of us are beekeepers for the money.
