In 1978, Mervin Weeks, fresh out of horticulture graduate school, purchased two acres of land to grow raspberries as a side job. Over 38 years later, it has become a year-round business doing much more than just growing raspberries. Its location in Paradise, UT offers unique growing conditions and makes the berries very flavorful. In 1985 they began making their first product: freezer jam, a Utah favorite. They later added syrups and jams, and their most recent product is a variety of juices made from currants and raspberries. They grow and process it themselves. Guaranteeing quality and freshness that their competitors can’t beat.
