Pollen Power!

We have two new exciting items for sale! Bee Pollen, and Black Locust Honey, both being harvested by Isaac as I sit here and type this post. To start with... we always get the question, "What do you do with bee pollen?" Pollen is used in several ways... as a nutritional supplement, an energy boost, and as a remedy for local airborne pollen allergies. You can eat pollen by itself, in a smoothie, on your cereal, in a salad, or our favorite way... on a spoon mixed with some honey. Pollen is packed with vitamins and minerals, and is composed of:
Protein (21.2%), Carbohydrates (48.5%), Fatty Acids (9.9%), Ash (3.5%), Fiber (14.2).
We have already heard customers at market who give us feedback that the pollen is improving their allergies and giving them a boost of energy. Pollen has a chalky consistency, but a more herbal, floral flavor. I prefer mixing it with honey to give it added flavor, and to improve the texture. Why not try mixing it with our fresh Spring Black Locust Honey?
This is our very favorite type of honey we harvest here at Honeyrun Farm. So light, delicate, and mild, it has a distinctive taste that is hard to describe. It is simply delicious, unique, and we always sell out of it before the summer and fall honey are long gone. Why not stop by one of our farm market stands and give it a try? Or if you want to take my word for it... swing over to our Etsy shop and purchase a jar. We are even offering a sale this week to entice you a bit further... 20% anything in our shop! Use the coupon code POLLENPOWER at checkout and it will automatically deduct your savings. Sale ends on the end of the day on July 4th. Thanks for stopping by!
