Located in Cedar, Michigan, in the heart of beautiful Leelanau  County, is where the sausage making history began. Pleva’s  Meats has been making old-fashioned meats since 1946. Ray Pleva, a native of Cedar, MI.

The most popular of the products is Plevalean, fondly referred to as the “Cherry Burger”. Patented in 1995, Plevalean burgers have found their way into school lunches in 17 states as well as many restaurants and other institutional settings.

Ray’s story has lured over 40 television crews to the Cedar store including two from CNN. He has even shared the stage with Oprah and appeared on Tim Allen’s Home Improvement. The show Extra! featured his story twice.

The cherry-enhanced meat products have also graced the pages of many magazines such as Food & Wine, Cooking Light, Eating Well, Good Housekeeping, Men’s Health and Fitness Magazine, as well as many national food, medical and trade journals.

The idea of combining cherries with meat came about when his eldest daughter, Cindy, became National Cherry Queen in 1987. It was her idea to help the struggling cherry industry by combining meat with the red tart cherry. Little did anyone know that the cherry would add a touch of gold and create products that not only taste good, but according to research by Michigan State University, are good for you too.
