Pollinator Habitats

In the United States, 1/3 of all agricultural outputs depend on pollinators. Pollinators play a vital role in the production of healthy crops. Gold Star is a proud supporter of providing a valued and protected habitat for pollinators by planting pollinator-friendly flowers. Company-wide we have 5 designated plots to help promote and sustain the pollinator population. At 2 of these locations, we have placed honey bee hives. The bees have been working hard collecting pollen and building their own populations within the hives.

Did you know:

If you have interest in planting your own pollinator habitat, we have special mixtures of flower seed that we sell in 1 pound packages. Contact your local Gold Star FS office to place your order.
