Pollen Ranch

Maker - Gary Wooley

Pollen Ranch

Maker Story

Secret Spice

David Rebb Firman has an unusual agricultural skill that he learned from his grandmother: He knows how to help crops become more fruitful by adding pollen. He’s also a pro when it comes to collecting wild-growing fennel, cleaning it, and extracting the pure fennel pollen.

Chefs and gourmets know all about the flavor-enhancing qualities of fennel pollen, but it’s not a spice found in a typical home kitchen. David’s on a mission to change that through his company, Pollen Ranch, which cultivates wild fennel pollen. (Don’t worry, it’s nothing like the sneeze-inducing pollen that plagues hay fever sufferers and it’s completely safe for consumption.)

Just a pinch of fennel pollen will transform nearly any dish -- seafood, beef, poultry, pork, and vegetables -- into something spectacular with its provocative blend of flavors that are reminiscent of anise, licorice, curry and saffron. Fennel pollen as a spice is more powerful and alluring than the plant itself, David says. Pollen Ranch also offers dill pollen, which likewise packs a more flavorful punch than the dill weed or dill stalk.

To complement specific dishes, David enlisted the help of award-winning chef Bernard Guillas, who created distinct fennel pollen blends designed for beef, poultry, vegetables, seafood, desserts, stir-fry, and spicy dishes. Each blend is a mighty arsenal of flavors that will keep your guests guessing about your mysterious secret ingredients.
