Honey Bee Products
We carry several types of honey throughout the year; the flavors vary depending on the season. The tri-valley area is home to many nectar-producing plants that honey bees love to gather from, including star thistle, madrone, chamise, buttercup, dandelion, rununculus (wild radish), black mustard, clover-vetch, wild blackberry, and eucalyptyus. Honey that is made from a wide variety of sources is called wildflower; if we are certain that greater than 50% of the nectar came from a particular plant, then we call it by that name (e.g., madrone honey).

Bee pollen is the pollen gathered from flowers during a honey bee's foraging. The bees eat it as a source of protein; many athletes use it for an energy boost, and it has been used for centuries as a homeopathic remedy for nose allergies.

Beewax is produced from lipid glands in the honey bee's abdomen. Honey bees must consume ten pounds of honey to produce one pound of beeswax. It is an edible, sustainable resource for hypoallergenic body products, including lip balms, hand salves, and skin creams. It is also used to make clean-burning candles, wood finishes, leather protectants, and many other applications; most fruit in the grocery store has a thin film of beeswax applied to keep it looking nice.
Steve's Bees sells beeswax by the ounce or pound. Inquire for large orders.
