My name is Kate, the founder of Kate’s Real Food, and I’d like to share a little about our story and growing brand.

My passion for organic food and simplicity developed at a really young age. My Mom grew up on a family farm in NY that was passed on through generations spanning over 200 years. As an adult, I worked for a farm in Victor, ID called Cosmic Apple Gardens that really helped shape my perspective on food, caring for animals and our land, and the importance of soil health and organic agriculture. 

In search of adventure, I moved to Jackson Hole, WY. I spent my day’s backcountry skiing, hiking, and biking. To sustain my busy lifestyle fueled by the great outdoors, I began making great-tasting, whole-food, energy bars that conveniently fit in my pocket. I used the same food values I was taught during my time on the farm and incorporated them into my recipes.

Today, we’re using a 20,000 square foot production facility located in Bedford, PA. Our USDA-certified organic snacks can now be found in 4,000+ retail locations across the country, including Whole Foods, REI, H-E-B, Amazon.com, and more.

We’re growing, learning, and having fun. We have big plans for the future, and we hope you stick around long enough to grow with us. You can expect flavor expansions, new products, improved sustainability practices, and so much more.

Beer and adventure, our two favorite things. We’ve built a dream out of pursuing the best out of both of them. And we are celebrating 12 years of doing whatever it took to keep this dream alive. Thanks to you, we like to think there’s not a single Idaho trail, river or campground that hasn’t been visited by a cracked-open can of Payette beer over the last twelve years. This gem-state, full of wonder, opportunity, and exploration, is the reason we are here today!

A husband and wife team joined by a community of beer makers and beer lover’s on a mission to make something worth sharing. Something worth celebrating.
