|How is Bee Pollen Produced?Our pollen is produced in Northeast Wisconsin. We collect pollen that our bees bring back to the hives in the months of May through September – our growing season. Each of these months supply the bees with blooms from different plants and flowers. Pollen is collected on a regular basis during the summer and is placed in a freezer to help preserve it’s freshness. At the end of the growing season, the pollen is cleaned, dehydrated and then blended with pollen from each month of the season. This ensures that those who use pollen to help build up their immune system from allergies to plants get a good blend of pollen.|
|What is Bee Propolis?Propolis is a form of resin which is collected by bees from bark and tree leaves. When combined by the worker bee with pollen, nectar and wax, it forms a 'sticky' substance termed 'propolis'. It is used around the hive as an effective sealant, filling holes and cracks in the shell of the bee hive. It is also used by bees as a 'disinfectant', where its sterile properties sterilizes the bees from infection. It is used very effectively by bees, who exploit its natural properties in many ways around the hive. To humans, it is said to stimulate the function of a healthy immune system and protect against certain conditions such as inflammation of the mucous membranes halitosis, coughs, tonsillitis and certain ulcers.*|
