What is pollen?
Pollen is a fine dustlike material found in flowers and used by plants as part of their reproduction. Pollinators (such as honeybees) visit the flower to feed off of the nectar and while there brush against the pollen. The pollen sticks to their bodies and is then transferred to a different flower that the pollinator visits. Honeybees collect pollen for use as a food source.
How to use pollen
Pollen can be eaten by itself, but most people prefer to add it to foods such as cereal or oatmeal. Many people claim that bee pollen helps strengthen the immune system, increase energy, dotoxify the body, and alleviate or even eliminate the symptoms of seasonal pollen allergies. In spite of this, you should always consult with your doctor before adding bee pollen to your diet, especially if you have health problems or are pregnant.
Purchase Stonewall Apiary Bee Pollen
Requests for bee pollen have increased dramatically this year, so we are investing in more pollen collection equipment. Unfortunately, the pollen traps are expensive: about $75.00 each when the shipping is factored in. Because of this, we are selling pollen for the first time and will dedicate all proceeds of our pollen sales toward the purchase of pollen collection equipment. You can help us reach our goal by purchasing a jar from us below. Once we reach our goal of ten new pollen traps, we will be able to offer larger jars for sale.
We are currently sold out of pollen. We apologize for the inconvenience. We'll have more in the spring of 2017!
