Post-order packaging instructions:

Mail at least a quarter cup of honey (per sample) in secure containers with adequate padding. Screw tops or sealed pour top containers are preferred and we suggest double sealing containers using a ziplock bag. You may submit extracted honey that has been screened of any comb and other matter, but do not pressure or fine filter honey before sending, as this could remove the pollen.

*How should I sample my honey? (to go on product pages):
1. Sieve honey minimally to retain maximum pollen. Any sieving removes some pollen, but you may remove wax and other debris using a ~500-micron screen. If your honey has already been sieved and you are concerned about your analysis, email
2. Be mindful of contamination. Pollen is everywhere! Immediately bottle honey for analysis during extraction to prevent airborne pollen contamination. Ensure your extraction and sampling equipment is clean to avoid contamination.
3. Stir your honey before sampling. Pollen can settle to the bottom of a container. When collecting from a large container like a bucket, stir before sampling to avoid collecting from the top layer, which may have lower pollen content.
