Locally Harvested Bee Pollen Granules

What is honeybee pollen?

The honeybee fills her pollen baskets with golden grains of pollen from a variety of plants, and carries it back and forth on her trips to the hive.  It’s very small in size and mixed with honey during transport. Bees pass through screens in the pollen trap as they enter the hive. An estimated 60% of collected pollen are brushed into the pollen drawer through this process. Because bees instinctively collect only the freshest and most potent pollen, there are variations in appearance, color ant taste.

There are also variations in taste, depending on the plants from which the pollen originated from; could be sweet and have a nut-like flavor, or it could have some bitterness.

Where is our honeybee pollen from?

Honeybee pollen granules have a big following… but it can still be hard to find.  The bee pollen found in Good Earth’s Gift Shop is from Bradfield’s Honey in Bismarck, Arkansas.

When you stop by, you will most likely find local honey and hot honey from Guenther Apiary close by; it’s local and delicious too.  Pair these with some of our little bee-themed gifts and create a sweet little gift basket!
