Description

This is raw bee pollen, harvested from our own beehives. What do you do with bee pollen, you ask? You eat it! Pollen is used as a nutritional supplement, an energy booster, as well as to combat allergies from seasonal local pollens. We like to mix our pollen with a spoonful of honey and take a teaspoon every morning. Others like to sprinkle it on their cereal, put it in smoothies, in their yogurt, or just eat it plain. It has a chalky consistency, but the flavor is more herbal... kind of like eating an edible flower. The taste and colors of pollen change throughout the season as the flowers in bloom change. For this reason each jar will vary slightly in color, flavor, and texture.

It is important to eat small doses at first (as small as one grain), as those with tree or flower pollen allergies may also have an allergic reaction to eating bee pollen.  Start with a few grains and build up to a larger amount as your body gets used to the bee pollen.

How do we harvest it? We have something called a "Pollen Trap" that goes on the bottom of our beehives, and as the bees fly in, the pollen is knocked off their legs and lands on a screen below. We harvest the pollen daily, clean it of any plant debris, freeze it for 24 hours, then place it in a room with fans and de-humidifiers... to remove some of the moisture and to prevent it from molding. We then store it in a freezer until it is ready to ship. This preserves the nutrients and flavor, to keep it as fresh as possible. When you receive the pollen it is fine to store it in your cupboard, in the refrigerator, or in your freezer. We suggest keeping it wherever you will remember to eat a spoonful a day. If you've tried pollen from the store... you may be surprised at how flavorful and fresh this pollen is by comparison.

Here are some of the nutritional components of bee pollen:

Protein 21.2%
Carbohydrates 48.5%
Fiber 14.2%
Fatty Acids 9.9%
Ash 3.5%

Bee Pollen is abundant with vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and more. It is the only food that contains all 22 essential known nutritional elements. Pollen is actually the male seed of flowers, required to fertilize the plant. As bees travel from flower to flower, they pick up pollen on their legs in "pollen sacs" and take it back to the hive to feed their baby bees. It is a great source of protein for the hive. We always make sure not to take more than the bees can spare for their own health and vigor.

Honeyrun Farm produces pure, raw honey from Williamsport, Ohio. We are a small family farm and are committed to using no chemicals in our beehives. We harvest our honey seasonally – Spring, Summer, and Fall – to bring out the distinct floral flavors and aromas that are representative of Central Ohio wildflowers. Honeyrun Farm is special because you are buying honey directly from the beekeeper… no packers or processors involved here.

If you need a greater quantity than what is listed here, just send us a message and we will create a custom listing or add more available to our Etsy shop.

Shipping policies

We ship via USPS. If we overcharge you for shipping by $1.00 or more we will refund your account via the same method you paid. Due to restrictions on shipping honey (considered an agricultural product) to other countries, along with the time it takes to determine shipping and set up custom listings, we are unable to ship internationally at this time.

Additional policies

All raw honey (honey fresh from the beehive) will granulate (get cloudy and thick) in time. This is natural, and does not mean the honey has "gone bad", as honey does not spoil. Simply heat the container in a hot pot of water to re-liquify. We recommend not heating it over 100 degrees to prevent the loss of flavor, enzymes, and nutritional benefits.
