With all the different information out there, it’s difficult to know exactly what you’re ingesting when eating food. Honey Acres in Neosho, WI, wants to buck that trend by letting you in on their manufacturing processes.
Honey has been around forever! But only recently have honey producers and manufacturers started mixing in preservatives, flavoring, and additives. Thankfully, some honey makers still produce pure and honest honey products. Honey Acres is one of them, and in keeping with transparency, they want to show you how they do it!
The Neosho, WI, honey product manufacturer and retailer takes several measures, both internally and externally, to comply with United States Food and Drug Association (FDA) and Safe Quality Food (SQF) standards regarding allergens in products.

According to Honey Acres, an estimated 32 million Americans suffer from a food allergy. 90% of these food allergies can be attributed to the FDA’s “Big Nine” allergens—milk, tree nuts, eggs, peanuts, fish, wheat, shellfish, soybeans, and sesame.
All of those, however, are not found in any of Honey Acres' products. And here's why.
Internally, Honey Acres follows good manufacturing practices (GMPs) and SQF allergen and gluten control procedures. These involve preventing allergen and gluten cross-contamination, regularly training employees about cross-contamination, and quarantining received shipments for inspection prior to release into the facility.
Externally, Honey Acres employs a rigorous supplier approval program. With this program, vendors are required to provide detailed information about their facilities, allergen and gluten control policies, and GMPs. Moreover, their shipments must come with product documentation and a Certificate of Analysis (CoA).
In addition, Honey Acres complies with all FDA standards regarding transparent labeling standards. Their products are also certified gluten-free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO) and certified Kosher Pareve by Quality Kosher Supervision.
“Our honey-based products make life so sweet, and we want everyone to be able to enjoy them,” said a spokesperson for the company. “Every step of our production process includes the most rigorous standards to ensure high-quality, safe products. We do it because we care about every one of our customers as if they were our own family.”
