Adam Finkelstein & Kelly Rausch
We've been working bees together since 1995
Adam has a broad background in Agriculture and Biological sciences. Kelly is a Biologist at the NIH. She and Adam work bees, cross and evaluate queens and extract and pack their honey in the beautiful Catoctin Valley, near Frederick,
VP Queen Bees received a SARE farmer grant from the USDA to research ways to select queen bees for mite tolerance. Using the Alcohol Wash Assay, we tested breeder queen candidates.
