Our Mid-West/Mid-Atlantic honey bee pasture blend has been designed to meet the needs of professional beekeepers and hobbyists throughout the varying climates of southern Minnesota, Iowa, central and northern Missouri, central and northern Illinois, southern Wisconsin, central and northern Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, southern New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut and northern New Jersey. 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 provides maximum nectar and pollen amounts throughout the growing season, and contains both perennial and self-seeding annual species for multi-year productivity. This blend can also be used as a green-manure cover crop.

  • 30% White Dutch Clover (Trifolium repens)

  • 30% Alsike Clover (Trifolium hybridum)

  • 20% Yellow Sweet Clover (Melilotus officinalis)

  • 10% Sainfoin (Onobrychis viciifolia)

  • 5% Cornflower (Centaurea cyanus)

  • 5% Lacy Phacelia (Phacelia tanacetifolia)
