Local, Seasonal Pollination
Our pollination operation is fortunate enough to operate exclusively within a 30 mile radius of our ranch.
Pollination season begins with almonds in February--a large portion of our hives pollinate C.F. Koehnen & Sons' own almond trees. Prune pollination starts in March.
Then, our hives return to their permanent locations for package shaking until the end of May, when clover pollination begins.
In mid-June we move into sunflowers, and in July the vine crops including squash, watermelon, cucumbers, and pumpkins.
