Cherry Republic, our favorite Michigan mail order



Cherry Republic


The Cherry Republic motto, "Life, Liberty, Beaches & Pie," sums up their philosophy — and their products too. You can get almost all the life sustenance you need from them, and it's all made with Michigan cherries. We're talking coffee, hard cider, wine, chocolate, sausage, caramels, mustard, horseradish, jams and jellies, bread, ketchup, and BBQ sauce, among many other products. And they don't stop with food — you can also find cherry soap, bowls (made from cherry wood), along with a line of Michigan-themed Cherry Republic apparel. Located not far from Sleeping Bear Dunes, the Republic is nestled in the heart of Michigan's cherry country, and ships anywhere in the world, overnight and priority mail.
