Pollen | RAW
Pollen is naturally gathered by honeybees as it catches on the tiny hairs on their body when they’re out foraging for nectar. We place a pollen trap on their hive so it naturally falls off when they enter.
Pollen can be a great way to lessen allergy symptoms.
*** Make sure to start slowly (a few kernels) to ensure you don’t have a reaction as it’s a compounded form of local allergens. By slowly building up immunity you may notice that you react less harshly when allergy season arrives.
Pollen is high in amino acids, making it a great source of protein. There are many benefits; we suggest doing your own research to learn all about them!

Okanagan Bee Pollen
We are based in Kelowna, BC, but our bees are all over the Okanagan! We believe that consuming honey shouldn’t have detrimental effects on the bees who make it. We strive to create a symbiotic relationship with our bees by using organic treatments and gentle practices to improve their lives as they do ours! We only take the excess honey that we are confident they don’t need, leaving plenty to keep them healthy and full through the winter! We believe that it is our responsibility to help restore the natural world that we constantly destroy with – what seems like – every action we make. No one can do it all on their own, but every little bit helps. Our impact of choice? Helping the bees flourish, not only to keep food on our table but to keep all plant life thriving so that all the other living things can have food and shelter.
You can find us at various farmer’s markets and artisan shows around the Okanagan, year-round, where you can sample some of our products to see why quality matters. Our staple markets include the Kelowna Farmer’s Market, Vernon Farmer’s Market, Peachland Farmer’s Market, and Penticton Farmer’s Market.
Our practices are organic and sustainable, with animal welfare and conservation first and foremost. We use gentle, yet science-based methods to improve the health of our local honeybee population.

About Our Raw Honey
Hiveology uses minimal intervention with our methods to provide the highest quality products closest to nature. We never add heat or pasteurize our honey. The smell, taste, and color depend on the types of flowers visited by the bees in their location. Honey has so many great health benefits, too many to mention here, but you can research for yourself, and have fun finding out why adding honey to your diet can be super beneficial!
