Commando Bee Starthistle Honey

Made from Yellow Starthistle in northern California

Temporarily Out of Stock.

Purchase Commando Bee Starthistle Honey.

On a remote cattle ranch in Yolo County, California, an elite group of highly trained combat bees risk life and wing to extract the finest honey available from the formidable Yellow Starthistle Plant. Many lesser bees have fallen prey to this plant’s hostile, spiny flowers. Now, dedicated insects like Sgt. Stinger & his “Pollen Posse” (Rambuzz, Buzzcut, and Queenie) have made it possible for you to enjoy the premium taste of this specialized starthistle honey!

Yellow Starthistle is one of the most invasive weeds in California. Poisonous to horses, its nasty spines also form thick patches that crowd out beneficial plants, and prevent cattle from grazing. "A positive quality of yellow starthistle is that bees produce flavorful, high quality honey when they forage on yellow starthistle." (Yellow starthistle - University of California IPM)

Availability of this unique starthistle honey is limited, however, because in dry years, the flowering capability of the starthistle plants is reduced. Only in the wettest springs do we have ideal conditions for growth of Yellow Starthistle.

Buy Commando Bee Starthistle Honey via mail order or through local stores, such as Nugget Market. We sell it by the jar, or in a 10 count case.

Purchase Blue Ridge Bay Leaves.

We once again proudly offer Blue Ridge Bay Leaves. Perfect for extreme cooking enthusiasts, our leaves are hand-picked from California Bay Laurel trees which grow naturally at the higher elevations on our ranch. After harvesting, the leaves are sorted for uniformity and vacuum dehydrated through a proprietary process which preserves their freshness. Many bay leaves on the market originate from Turkey, but nothing compares to the boldness and aroma of California's trees. These leaves make an excellent addition to soups, stews, sauces, marinades, chowders, pot roasts, steamed fish, or vegetables, and are the perfect compliment to Yolo Land & Cattle Co. grass finished beef.
