Collecting Pollen from My Bees

Posted by & filed under beekeeping, honey.


My first honey harvest is coming up soon and my CSA members are in for a treat. I’m including a bit of pollen with each pick up and this week I placed pollen traps from Brushy Mountain on the front of my hives.

Here are a couple short videos demonstrating how they work and what they look like once set up. Not the most graceful design but it works pretty well. It’s super easy to install and results in little to no damage to the delicate bees.

The end result: fresh pollen to dust on fresh chevre or consume as a supplement. Check out the nutritional benefits of bee pollen HERE.
