BEE POLLEN INFUSED HONEY JAR: Loaded with fresh pollen, collected by bees, to give a new spin on honey. Raw honey was great before, but now it is loaded with even more antioxidants, nutrients, amino acids and protein for your morning smoothie! Bee Pollen Fortified Honey has been infused with a mix of spring, summer and fall pollens collected from our hives throughout the entire growing season.

Local raw honey is renowned for its allergy remediation benefits, due to the small amount of pollens that are naturally present in the honey. Research published in the International Archives of Allergy and Immunology in May 2011, found that patients consuming honey containing the pollen which they are allergic to gained significant control of their allergy symptoms, more so than patients using convention allergy medicine. I guess mother nature has always known best!

Size: 10oz jar. This is a heat sensitive product, and will melt if left in a warm area.

HONEY STICKS: These pure-raw-honey sticks are completely free of artificial dyes and colors - the way nature intended - Enjoy!

 

ARTIST’S STORY:

The seed packets she creates are made of a mixture of 5-10 regionally, MN native annual and perennial herbs and wildflowers that are attractive to bees and other beneficial insects.

Honey Sticks and 10 oz.

Their love for food and the environment led them from the field into the kitchen. They share a passion for knowing where our food comes from, how it is produced and how we can create a more sustainable system of production. They share their love for honey with you and hope you enjoy their fantastic product: Bee Pollen Infused Honey and Pure Honey Sticks.
