Mohawk Valley Trading Company Review and Giveaway


With the many benefits that raw honey offers, this has become an essential item in my home. Check out this article to see five common and beneficial uses for honey. I recently was introduced to the Mohawk Valley Trading Company which offers an extensive variety of seasonal raw honey as well as a selection of other related products including, beeswax, beeswax candles, maple syrup, and handmade soaps. All products are made in the USA with their base location being in Utica, New York.

Raw Honey


The Mohawk Valley Trading Company offers a selection of seasonal wildflower honey products. I received both the Summer Wildflower Honey and Autumn Wildflower Honey and was impressed by the large 1 lb size (just $10). I also like that they package their honey products in glass containers.

Summer Wildflower Honey: From April thru mid-late August, hives are on both slopes and the surrounding area of the Southern Kuyahoora Valley & Central Mohawk Valley regions of Upstate New York.

Autumn Wildflower Honey: From late August thru October, hives are on both slopes and the surrounding area of the Southern Kuyahoora Valley & Central Mohawk Valley regions of Upstate New York.



Mohawk Valley Trading Company offers 100% pure, all natural, yellow, unbleached, and filtered beeswax from their exclusive hives. You can either purchase a 1 oz bar for $2 or a 1 lb block for $13. This beeswax smelled amazing and I can’t wait to melt it down for use as either a candle or lip balm!

Beeswax Candle


This shop offers several varieties of beeswax candles that are perfect for around the house or given as a gift. They are hand poured and dipped with pure, all natural, unbleached, yellow beeswax produced by their bees in the USA.

Handmade Soap 


With so many conventional soaps being loaded with chemicals, this company’s handmade soap is a great alternative. All of the ingredients used in their soaps are all-natural and free of synthetic and artificial fragrances, dyes, detergents, and preservatives. They are instead formulated with goat’s milk, various botanical sources, and organic hemp seed oil, olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil, castor bean oil, and/or avocado oil.

Maple Syrup


Mohawk Valley Trading Company offers maple syrup in a few delicious varieties including: Grade A, Robust, Dark, Pure Maple Syrup. They are also available  in two sizes of glass bottles: 32 oz glass bottle ($30) and 16 oz glass bottle ($15). This tasty syrup has become a new favorite in my family!

  1. Aimee T says

    I’m a Vermonter and I believe it’s sacrilege to buy Maple Syrup from any other state buy my own! (Not to mention it’s Grade A and no self-respecting Vermonter uses Grade A maple syrup!) They have an awesome selection of honey though… either blueberry blossom or apple blossom would be fun to try!

  2. Dorothy Teel says

    We would really like to try the grade A, Robust, Dark, Pure Maple Syrup from Mohawk Valley sounds great to me.

  3. Diane Cooper says

    I can’t make up my mind whether I like the raw honey (either one) or the maple syrup the best. I would love both, I know!

  4. Kristi H. says

    I am excited about all the products, but I have been cooking more with pure maple syrup. I would love to try this. I wasn’t even aware there were different kinds of maple syrup.

  5. T.J. Wallace says

    My husband has always, always wanted to try comb honey, so now I know where to get some. I think he imagines it tasting like candy…or honeycombs cereal, so he might be in for an unpleasant surprise…but it would be fun to get him some anyway.

  6. sharon b says

    i definitely need the maple syrup. we eat lots of pancakes, waffles, and french toast. carb happy family. the beeswax candles would be for mommy.

  7. Nicki C. says

    My husband would be excited about the maple syrup since he lived in NY for a while. We go back and forth since I prefer Canada’s or VT’s. I’m excited about the honey!

  8. E. Diane Macauley says

    I would love any of the raw honeys! I would also really like a couple of bars of the beeswax – had no idea there are so many uses for it. very cool!

  9. Jesselyn A/Jesstinger says

    We’ve always loved REAL Maple Syrup – but my husband has just discovered HONEY: He has read everything about it from it’s history to it’s nutritional and medicinal values and recipes galore! He loves everything about honey and want to try every kind there is. He would go crazy just looking at Mohawk Valley’s VERY impressive selection of raw and organic honeys!

    This is a prize package that he (we) would truly appreciate. Thanks!

  10. says

    What fabulous products Mohawk Valley offers! I’d most like the beeswax. I am just getting started making my own body and home care products and natural beeswax is such a versatile, healthful addition to so many recipes!

  11. says

    I would love some of the bar soap i use just plain raw honey now to wash my face with, it is great but have to get it from the health food store to get good kind.

  12. Cynthia P says

    It is very hard to decide which item I would like (and appreciate) more. Oh, dear! I guess, since I have to choose only one, it would be the MAPLE SYRUP, which would have so many lovely uses in our house.

  13. Alicia C. says

    Although there are many honeys I’d like to try, I think I’d like to see if the Goldenrod Honey could keep my nasty goldenrod allergies at bay. The local honey I have works on all pollen allergies I have except that darn goldenrod!

  14. Jacqueline W. says

    The “Decorative Egg” beeswax candle is so pretty. It would look great in a gift basket with some of their other products.

  15. Kerri says

    I’d love to try honey from different sources. It’s fascinating how the different flowers can affect the taste.

  16. Jayme H. says

    I’d really like the maple syrup. After reading on their site how to make maple sugar and candy, I want to try! Thanks!

  17. Susan Johnson says

    I think I would love their beeswax pillar candles the most, because beeswax smells heavenly, and I’m not allergic to its natural aroma.

  18. Huri Kouzouyan says

    I’m a sucker for maple syrup, i think my taste buds would like that best! But in close second…hand made soaps always please around here!

  19. Rebecca W. says

    I would really love to get some of the Raw Adirondack Wildflower Honey. I lived in the Adirondacks for a bit, and I bought some of the local wildflower honey, and it’s some of the best tasting honey I’ve ever had.

  20. jo n says

    It would be so much easier asking what I wouldn’t want to try!!! Mostly I would like to have the buckwheat honey for the cold/flu season. My daughter very much enjoys it in her herbal cold tea.

  21. Michelle H says

    This whole package looks awesome! I would enjoy the candle and beeswax the most probably, since they are new to me.

  22. jess fritzges says

    Lots of times its easy to decide a favorite, but I can’t choose. I love maple and honey and you don’t even want to know how much I love beeswax candles!

  23. angie p says

    Everything there looks so good! I’d love to try the Tulip Poplar-Black Locust Honey and the Maple Syrup the most, I think.
