My Shopping List
Our Philosophy- We will buy quality products from local source whenever possible, they must be affordable and fresh. Supporting local companies allows us to help the local economy and our customers. Many local companies still operate the same way their founders did- years ago. Many of our customers are employees of the companies we support. We encourage all of our customers to support these local companies. They are the fabric of Cenrtral New York.
Hinerwadel Salt potatoes- A Central New York favorite! When it comes to salt potatoes there are many imitators, but none compare to the original Hinerwadel brand. Anvailable year round.

6Byrne Dairy- A Syracuse company the Byrne family has been a supplier to our company for many years. Their milk is fresh, is delivered on local trucks. We also buy Byrne's orange juice.
Honey- Pure honey is used to describe the product harvested from beehives in with no additives of any sort. Raw honey is honey that has not been heated to temperatures greater than that in a beehive on a hot summer day. Angry Bee Acres honey is both pure and raw and harvested from hives in and around Hannibal, NY.
Clover and wildflower honey come from the same hives, but are harvested at different times of year. Clover is harvested in early and mid-summer when clover is in bloom and is the primary nectar source for the bees. Wildflower is harvested in the late summer and fall when goldenrod and aster are the primary nectar sources in this area.
Clover is a light, golden-colored honey with a sweet, mild taste. Wildflower honey has a more robust flavor. The later in the season wildflower honey is harvested, the darker in color it will be.
If your raw honey begins to crystallize, there is nothing wrong with it! That is a characteristic of raw honey that has not been pasteurized or filtered. Just warm it up gently to return it to its liquid state.
Heluva Good Cheese- Now nationally known, Heluva Good started in nearby Sodus, NY. We still buy direct and receive weekly deliveries on Heluva Good's own private fleet.
