Royal Jelly Farm
Our fresh royal jelly comes straight from the hive with nothing added. No artificial colors, flavors, preservatives or additives. Just pure, unprocessed fresh royal jelly harvested by caring beekeepers from strong and resilient hives.
Otherwise known as nature’s best-kept secret, fresh royal jelly is the “milk” queen bees consume, and is thought to contribute to their long lifespan. Produced by nurse bees, this milky, pale yellow, creamy liquid is the queen bee’s only source of food and it is where she gets all of her energy to lay more than 1500 eggs per day! Thanks to royal jelly, queen bees can live up to 4 years which is almost 50 times longer than a worker bee.
This jar contains a kilogram (2.2lbs) of royal jelly.

About Royal Jelly Harvesting
In nature when a colony needs a new queen, worker bees will build several wax queen cells. A queen will lay an egg into these cells and nurse bees will fill them with royal jelly to feed and develop the new queen. The hatched queens then fight it out – and the survivor is the new queen of the colony.
Commercially, beekeepers mimic the natural process by inserting wax queen cells or “starts” into the hive. The beekeeper will then insert an egg into these starts and the nurse bees then fill them with royal jelly.
At a very specific time, the beekeeper removes these fake queen cells from the colony and uses a small suction tool to extract the royal jelly from each cup. Larvae are filtered out and the royal jelly is chilled immediately. This painstaking process requires a strong colony and even more attentive beekeeper. It is estimated to produce a single ounce of royal jelly it requires 10 to 20 cells.
