We worked with Empire State Honey Producers Association to craft a mix perfect for beekeepers and non-beekeepers looking to attract bees and other pollinators to shady areas of their property.
This mix was created to work well in different areas of New York State. If you have questions as to whether or not it will grow well in your geographical area, Ask the Prairie Guys!
