Raw Honey from Mohawk Valley Trading Company

Whether you use honey for health benefits or for pleasure, it's good to know that there is a large variety of honeys in the market, and that not all honey are alike.

Last year I was introduce to this amazing company called “Mohawk Valley Trading Company” I had the opportunity to try and review some of their products and have to say that I have been nothing but impressed every time.

Many people including my family have been using honey for years and including it in their daily diet for it’s great health benefits, what I have recently learned are better and faster if we use raw honey. The process used to make the honey clear and more liquid like destroys some of the benefits that are originally in the honey.

Honey a healthy Natural Products!
Product Description:

I have tried many types of honey, but trying honey and traying raw honey is not the same, below are the names and descriptions of each of the products that we received.

Mohawk Valley Trading Company - Raw Honey

Raw Summer Wildflower Honey: Or polyfloral honey that is collected from April thru mid-late August in Southern Kuyahoora Valley & Central Mohawk Valley regions of Upstate New York.

Raw Buckwheat Honey: It’s a non processed product as close and pure to honey from the hive without actually taking it yourself from the hive.

Tulip Poplar- Black Locust Honey: This honey comes from the nectar of the blossom of the Tulip Poplar and Black Locus Trees that bloom just about the same time in the region. In the company's own words: “Raw honey is unheated, unpasteurized, unfiltered, unprocessed unblended and in the same condition as it was in the hive".

Our Experience and opinion:


We have compared these 3 honeys with one another, used them in some very interesting recipes and prepared homemade remedies for the bad cold that has been attacking many people in our community.

We love Honey, and use it for many thing, we tried raw honey last year for the very first time and after that I can totally tell the difference and even though I will not say no if someone would offer for example tea with commercial honey, I would prefer the raw over the commercial any day of the week.

Something else that I learned last year is that even in a raw form there are many types of honey and quite different in flavor.

The Raw Summer Wildflower Honey which we had reviewed previously is one of our favorites, we love to use it as a spread on bread and most recently we have enjoyed it in tortillas. It is of a thicker consistency, and it almost taste as if you were eating some type of homemade sweet, sometimes I go and just have a baby spoon full of honey (Yummy).

Raw Buckwheat Honey: Is the darkest in color and I would say it's probably an acquired taste the first time I tried it if I had not known it was honey, I would have never guessed it and would probably have said it was something that had to do with maple syrup or something similar.

This is one honey that I rather mixed into something that have it by itself as its flavor is so strong in different from any other honey that I have tried before. I warm up a cup of milk and added a teaspoon of Buckwheat Honey as I have done with other honeys, as I tried it my first reaction was "what is this?” So I gave it another sip and it was as if I was drinking a tea instead of just sweeten milk, now some day’s instead of drinking Tea I enjoyed a warm milk with buckwheat honey.

I was so surprised with the Tulip Poplar- Black Locust Honey as I was expecting it to be the darkest in color and yet is was not, it helps to know that the black in the name is for the tree and not for the honey (Yes, that's me)...

This honey is not as dense as the raw summer wildflower honey, nor has the intense taste that the raw buckwheat honey has, yet it is different and tasty at the same time. it’s consistency would be in between commercial honey and the raw summer wildflower honey and it’s equally great in a toast, crackers, adding it to cottage cheese, and great for sweetening tea.

Mohawk Valley Trading Company - Raw Honey

Our final thoughts: Mohawk Valley Trading Company Raw Honey are well worth buying, especially if the honey will be used for it's health benefits. They are great in taste, all natural, and good prize value.

We eat a lot of pancakes and waffles, so the maple syrup is something that would be popular in our household.

Ever since we started eating (mostly) REALLY healthy my Honey/Hubby has acquired both a real taste / love for and an interest in HONEY. So I know that he'd love Mohawk Valley's products. I would be especially excited to try the
Adirondack Summer and Autumn Wildflower Honey - as well as the Apple Blossom (and the Blueberry Blossom) Honeys.

And when it comes to our occasional pancake or French Toast splurges - we both still have a weakness for MAPLE SYRUP... Thanks for the terrific giveaway. Agreed: Mohawk Valley is awesome!
