Wisconsin Natural Acres Expands Into Chicago Market

Company's All-Natural Honey Now Available at Treasure Island Foods

CHILTON, WI--(Marketwire - March 19, 2008) - Wisconsin Natural Acres (WNA), producer of all-natural honey and home to millions of healthy and thriving honeybees, today announced the availability of the company's premium honey in Treasure Island Foods' seven Chicago-area stores.

A Chicago-area staple for more than 40 years, Treasure Island Foods was founded to combine the conventional with the best of specialty, imported and domestic products. In fact, Julia Child called Treasure Island "The most European supermarket in America." The markets' buyers travel throughout the U.S. and Europe each year to find the newest and best-quality products available.

Deep in the heart of Wisconsin, there's a place where clean air and sunshine are prevalent. Where fields of bright-white clover and deep-purple alfalfa stretch for miles, and off in the distance, a lake that stretches as far as the eye can see reflects the sun's bright rays. This is a place that some very lucky honeybees call home, and it's a place where Wisconsin Natural Acres is using centuries-old beekeeping secrets to produce the most pure honey in the world. WNA's bees are intentionally placed in areas away from crops that require heavy use of any farming chemicals/fertilizers. As a result, WNA's bees are much healthier and not one bee has been lost to Colony Collapse Disorder.

In addition to Treasure Island Foods, WNA's premium honey can also be found at each of Sunset Foods' four Chicago-area stores. Family owned since 1937, Sunset Foods places a high value on carrying organic and healthy products that are locally raised.

"With seven Treasure Island Foods, and four Sunset Foods Chicago-area stores, local residents now have the opportunity to taste what honey was meant to taste like. Lightly sweet with an intense, deep-honey flavor; our product is all natural, never heated and rich in antioxidants," said Doug Schulz, proprietor and head bee wrangler of Wisconsin Natural Acres.

About Wisconsin Natural Acres

Located in Chilton, Wisconsin, Wisconsin Natural Acres runs its day-to-day beekeeping operation with more than one-hundred years of experience and knowledge passed down from friends and family. Using all-organic processes with no chemicals, the bees feed off of the alfalfa, basswood and clover which are plentiful in Wisconsin. Once collected, WNA's honey is never heated or filtered, as this can kill the immune system-building antioxidants which are prevalent in honey's natural state.
