BeeKind Bee Pollen
Bee pollen is a complete protein, rich in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids and anti-oxidants. It is considered an immune system builder that will also enhance vitality. Bee pollen is also a great brain booster, lifting brain fatigue, improving alertness and helping concentration levels over an extended period of time.
Bee pollen is collected by honey bees while foraging from flower to flower. As they fly through the air, their bodies become positively charged with static electricity, such that when they land on a flower, the pollen particles stick to the static charged hairs covering their body. They use their corbiculae (back legs/ pollen baskets) to transport the flower pollen (protein) back to the hive. Beekeepers use pollen traps during peak pollen harvest times of the year that encourage bees to pass through the trap brushing off some of the collected pollen into a tray for the beekeeper to harvest. Harvesting bee pollen for consumption is a balance between ensuring the hive has enough to sustain itself, and collecting the access, much like harvesting honey. The beekeeper then dries and cleans the pollen collected for consumption.

Not at this time. For now, we source quality bee pollen for human consumption, while we work towards collecting and harvesting our own locally sourced bee pollen.
The process of collecting, cleaning, and drying bee pollen involves a lot of extra work and equipment. However, we do expect to collect and harvest our own locally sourced bee pollen into the future.
Bee pollen can be consumed by the spoonful, sprinkled over a salad, as a topping to a meal, mixed into smoothies and blended drinks.
We can offer bulk discount retail pricing for larger sizes, and larger quantities (cases).
As we increase our operations and annual harvest, we will be promoting wholesale pricing for business to business customers.
