Bea’s Ho-Made Products Highlighted in Food & Wine

Bea’s Ho-Made Products, 763 Hwy 42 in Ellison Bay, received accolades in a recent article published in Food & Wine Magazine showcasing the one thing you must eat in every state.

“There [in Wisconsin], a humble, cinder-block hut is home to Bea’s Ho-Made Products, which has been standing for generations,” the article states. “In a world of shrinking pies, Bea’s sticks up for the old ways, cranking out generous, 10-inch beauties made with hand-rolled, from-scratch, lard-laden crusts.”

An example of the many grassroots businesses that line the peninsula, Bea’s Ho-Made Products began in 1961 as a roadside stand selling cherries. Over the years, the menu of small-batch products grew to include jams, jellies, pickles, baked goods and, of course, pies. Shop hours may vary, so call 920.854.2268 to hear the current hours.
