For over 70 years, the Gates family has helped define the taste of Northwest Montana. In 1949, Eva used her grandmother’s recipe and her wood cook stove to make preserves from the excess yield of her strawberry patch.
Today Eva’s granddaughter and great grandchildren produce more than just strawberry preserves. Six kinds of preserves and three syrups, added by Eva between 1950 & 1956, capture the most distinctive flavors native to the Flathead Valley.
