Taste a thousand flowers in every drop. Our bees have lots of Wild Flora to choose from.

Just a few of the many flowers we've spotted our bees on lately.



Nuttall's thistle


Sensitive briar

Dayflower

cilantro

Pink pollen from cilantro growing in our herb garden. Herbs are great sources of nectar and pollen for many pollinators. They especially love lavender, oregano, dill, fennel, rosemary, and thyme.

Like us, Bees need carbohydrates, protein, and water. Nectar is their source of carbs. Pollen provides protein.

It's also important for bees (and us!) to have multiple sources of food for a balanced diet. The varied minerals and vitamins provided by different pollens and nectars keep bees' immune systems healthy and helps them fend off disease and mites.


We know our bees are getting a varied diet by looking at the pollen they are bringing into the hives. Each species of flower has a slightly different color of pollen.






Our Wild flora Honey reflects the terroir of our farm. You'll taste the wild in every drop!
