Monarch butterflies are beautiful and fascinating with an unparalleled annual journey. Milkweed is luxurious and amazing, but disappearing. Monarch butterflies depend upon milkweed during their migration. Our goal is to restore and preserve Monarch butterfly habitat by developing products based on sustainably grown and harvested milkweed raw materials.
Monarch Flyway is the world's largest supplier of wild-crafted, sustainably harvested milkweed products. Habitat restoration is our favorite use for seed and we supply large quantities for land reclamation, highway beautification and smaller quantities for personal butterfly gardens. If the thought of milkweed isn't warm and fuzzy enough, did you know you can sleep with it too? Hypodown® is a combination of white goose down and Syriaca Clusters, or milkweed fluff sold by Ogallala Comfort Company. Until recently, no one wanted to plant much milkweed seed, so we started pressing it for oil in an attempt to make it useful. Wow! We found a gem. Milkweed seed oil can be used as a topical pain reliever so we created Milkweed Balm. Don't worry, Monarchs are our first priority, but when you've been collecting milkweed for almost 30 years, some of that seed isn't worth planting anymore. We focus on Monarch Sustainability by helping people feed their families with the money they collect from picking milkweed pods. Milkweed is a perennial and grows from its roots each year. Since seeds fall out of the bags as people pick, more and more milkweed is available for Monarchs in the area every year. We firmly believe BOTH Monarchs and people should benefit from a healthy ecosystem.
