Designed for the warm humid summers and cold snowy winters of northern Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine, our Great Lakes/New England honey bee pasture blend will provide maximum nectar and pollen amounts throughout the growing season. This clover-heavy blend contains a large percentage of legumes as well as wildflower species preferred by the honey bee and other beneficial pollinators. It also includes perennial and self-seeding annual species for multi-year productivity, and can be used as a green-manure cover crop. Great for both professional beekeepers and hobbyists.

- 40% Alsike Clover (Trifolium hybridum)
- 20% White Dutch Clover (Trifolium repens)
- 20% Yellow Sweet Clover (Melilotus officinalis)
