About Scots Pine Pollen: In late May we head out to the forest as a team to gather the strobiles which are filled with golden grains of pollen ~ We spend full days in the spring light and air, and we are literally covered with the bright yellow powder at the end of the day ~ and totally enlivened! It tastes of the forest ~ piney and delicious!

The window of time for gathering Scots Pine Pollen is a brief week in Spring when our Woodland Essence team cheerfully picks the pollen-filled strobiles one at a time!
