Mt. Pleasant Produce is proud to offer only the finest raw honey taken straight from the hive and shipped to your door. Unlike much of the honey you’ll find at your grocery store, ours is collected from our Amish farm and then packaged and shipped — without any extra steps in between. When you purchase honey from us, you’ll be getting pure, unfiltered and unpasteurized honey for optimum taste and nutrition.
Did you know that there are many different reasons why people love honey, other than the fact that it just tastes delicious? People have been using honey for decades to boost their immune system, soothe a sore throat and even to promote faster healing of wounds. Raw honey is also naturally high in antioxidants and other beneficial nutrients, making it a tasty treat that’s also good for you.
You might be wondering if there really is a difference between raw honey and filtered, pasteurized honey. The answer is — yes! When you purchase honey from our Amish market, you’ll not only get the freshest honey possible, you’ll also be getting honey in its purest form. When honey is pasteurized, the heat destroys many of the nutritional benefits, and intense filtration removes much of the “good stuff” like bee pollen. That’s why honey that has been filtered will have a clear amber color instead of a more cloudy appearance. Clear means that much of the beneficial ingredients have been removed!
If you appreciate farm- to- table products and wish you had a year-round farmers market nearby, you’re in luck! Our Amish farmers have grouped together to bring you the best of their products — and best of all, you can order them online and have them shipped directly to you!
