The top pollinator wildflowers that our bees forage on from spring until fall in Central Nebraska include penstemons, purple, white, silky, and foxtail prairie clover, milkweed, legumes, wild bergamot, rocky mountain bee plant, a variety of sunflowers, goldenrod, and asters, among many more flowering plants.
We employ organic beekeeping methods to ensure our bees are healthy and that all our bee products are the way nature has intended. Bees survive on two forms of nutrition Bee Pollen and Honey. During the summer we collect both bee pollen and honey from our hives and allow the bees time to refill their hives in the fall and spring. Our fresh bee pollen has a taste that can be described as rich and earthy from a variety of floral plants. Unlike regular store bought bee pollen, our pollen is never processed or heated in order to maintain all vital nutrient qualities of antioxidants, protein, enzymes, vitamins, and amino acids. Our pollen is fresh and is best kept refrigerated after opening. Most large honey producers heat/dry their bee pollen to make it more preserved which destroys all the nutrients! We keep our bee pollen raw and natural the way the bees intended. When you purchase our bee pollen, it comes straight from us the beekeeper as we gather the pollen from our bees using a “pollen trap” and bottle all of our bee pollen by hand straight from our hives.
Bee pollen is considered a “Super Food” and is the only food that contains over 160 nutrients including all known vitamins:
Bee Pollen contains at least 22 amino acids, 18 vitamins, 25 minerals, 59 trace elements, 11 enzymes or co-enzymes, 14 fatty acids, 11 carbohydrates and approximately 25 % protein. Bee pollen is extremely rich in carotenes, which are metabolic precursors of vitamin A. It is also high In B complex and vitamins C, D, E and Lecithin. Bee pollen contains over 50 % more protein than beef, yet its fat content is very low. It is also an excellent vegetarian source of protein typically possessing more of the essential amino acids, pound for pound, than animal proteins like meat, eggs, and dairy products.
Daily use of pollen also ensures an intake of the more obscure, yet essential trace minerals that may be lacking from commercially grown produce and are often not included in vitamin mineral supplements. Most of us are unaware that the nutrients supplied by cooked fruits, vegetables and meats are not considered fresh because their enzymes have been exposed to high heat. Even taking a multivitamin can't offer the superior nutrient array of raw and fresh food.

Bee pollen contains more than 300 natural compounds, according to Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, which also says that many of these phytochemicals have strong antioxidant properties. Antioxidants help remove unstable and potentially harmful molecules, called free radicals, from your body, and may help prevent or minimize inflammation and also help boost the immune system.
Bee pollen can help the body to build up a resistance to allergies by lowering the body's sensitivity to pollen. This is similar to the way vaccinations can prevent disease. Bee pollen contains bits of the very same substances that can aggravate seasonal allergies, and by consuming it in small substances it can help the body to gradually build up a resistance.
Researchers have demonstrated that there is a substance in bee pollen that inhibits the development of numerous harmful bacteria. It demonstrates a series of actions such as antifungal, antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, hepatoprotective, anticancer immunostimulating, and local analgesic. Experiments have shown bee pollen contains an antibiotic factor effective against salmonella and some strains of bacteria. On the clinical level, studies have shown that a regulatory effect on intestinal function can be attributed to bee pollen. The presence of a high proportion of cellulose and fiber in pollen, as well as the existence of antibiotic factors, all contribute to an explanation for this efficacious effect.
It is reported that bee pollen in the diet acts to normalize cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood: upon the regular ingestion of bee pollen, a reduction of cholesterol and triglycerides was observed. High-density lipoproteins (HDL) increased, while low-density lipoproteins (LDL) decreased. A normalization of blood serum cholesterol levels is also seen.
Bee pollen improves strength and endurance and has been used as an energizing supplement for athletes who take bee pollen regularly.
Professors N. Mankovsky and D. G. Chebotarev, two Russian scientists, confirm honeybee pollen stimulates cell renewal. They say, "The rejuvenation of skin and body cells can be encouraged by the administration of the poly-vitamins, microelements, enzymes, hormones, and amino acids present in bee pollen. These nutrients are needed by the body to form new tissue." These professors go on to praise the properties of bee pollen, calling them "vital to a form of internal and external rejuvenation at the cellular level.”
