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.
