Welcome to Chad's Raspberry KitchenChad’s Raspberry Kitchen is a locally owned and operated family company started in 2000 near Bear Lake, Utah, and has been serving the surrounding areas for decades. We are experienced in providing gourmet raspberry salsa, raspberry jam, syrup, and more.
Local Raspberry Products
Named after a young man named Chad and born with a rare liver disease, Chad required an organ transplant in 1987 and lost his vision the next year from an infection. The raspberry product company was founded as a support for Chad and as an occupation for him until he gained his independence in 2006. At that time, he received his Seeing Eye dog, Huck, who helped him with his independence while his parents and younger brother ran the company located in Bear Lake.
Bear Lake is famous for raspberries. The cold nights sweeten the berries like apples in the first frost. There are others out there that claim to be “Bear Lake.” However, Chad’s Raspberry Kitchen is the only company that houses its headquarters in Bear Lake, grows our own berries, and uses those berries in our products. Our raspberry products include, but are not limited to, raspberry jam, raspberry salsa, gourmet raspberry syrup, BBQ sauce, and vinaigrette. From the raspberry field to our kitchen is only a few hundred feet.
Our Family Business
Since he gained his independence, Chad continually struggled with chronic health issues, undergoing numerous emergency surgeries. On Christmas of 2012 he fell ill once more and succumbed to an infection in his liver in February of 2013. As his family, we are continuing to tell his story and share our (add text) local raspberry products with everyone. On a personal note, the gold name of Chad's is not simply the name on a bottle. It is golden because it is imprinted on our hearts.
Chad's younger brother, Patrick, and Patrick's wife, Kayla, have moved to the property and are now running the company. We have grown from a very tiny raspberry jam company to making barbecue sauces, salsas, vinaigrettes, and other jams other than raspberry.
