Our bee pollen comes from local clover and wildflower fields, and can only be harvested for three weeks out of the year since the bees need it the rest of the time. Watch for a fresh harvest in the fall! The flavour can change a bit each year.
What is Bee Pollen?
When the bees collect nectar from these flowers they also collect pollen, which can often be seen sticking to their hind legs in flight. They combine the powdery pollen with an enzyme mixture into little nuggets that they normally then take into the hive and deposit into certain honeycomb cells where it becomes a potent food for the worker bees, giving them all of their energy and vitality. It does the same for people too, plus it gives us natural defenses against allergens, and boosts the immune system better than anything else known.
Note that if you are allergic to bee stings, it is not recommended that you consume bee pollen! However, if you have Seasonal Allergies we highly recommend that you try Bee Pollen :)
