The supplier from California is a small company established in 2001 with the first sales beginning in 2002. They producs Wild Fennel & Dill Pollen. The pollen is collected once per year in the month of July. It is collected with permission from private, city, county and state owned property located in Napa, Sonoma and Solano counties of northern California.
The pollen is hand collected by picking the umbrels (flowers) which are then placed in plastic 35 gallon buckets. Once gathered the umbrels are spread on to a canvas tarp to be sun dried. When they are sufficiently dried they are gathered for transport to the facility located in Goshen, California where they are screen filtered numerous times. After the screening process the result is pure fennel & dill pollen spice.
It is then placed in large plastic bags, sealed and placed into a new clean and thick walled plastic 35 gallon bucket with lid and taken to a cold storage facility where it is kept until used. As a result of the fennel pollen being a dry product and stored in a temperature and humidity controlled facility, the shelf life is virtually unlimited. However, each harvest year, to date, has been sold out in the same year. As for customer shelf life, it is recommend that customers store the fennel pollen in a cool dry place to achieve a two year shelf life.
Due to the nature of the screen filtering processes the pollen umbrels become completely inert with no known airborne allergenic threat. Once the pollens are put through any cooking or food preparation process the pollens become totally inert and pose no known risk of allergy. So you’re safe from the sneezes and puffy eyes!!
