Here's a full description of Kate's Real Food from the website:
"Originating in Jackson Hole, Kate’s Tram Bars were made for big mountain
play, mainly, for maximizing ski time at the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. The
organic and all natural bars have rich textures and an amazing flavor mix which
has created addicts far and wide.
A small company, Kate’s is growing quickly! All it takes is one taste; the
bars speak for themselves, and those words are spreading like western wildfires.
How can an energy bar be this good?
“Kate’s” carries Kate’s philosophy of a good life. Play good, eat good, live
better. We strive to find the perfect balance of work and play in our lives and
support the folks who’ve supported us from the beginning, and along the way.
OUR MISSION: Kate’s exists to provide people with delicious, real food products; grow, promote and support outdoor play; and support sustainable organic farming practices.
- Real food products: We believe that being outside shouldn’t
mean settling for a boring food experience. We provide products that are
portable, delicious and good for you at the same time. We only make bars with real ingredients that energize both body and soul!
- Grow, Promote and Support Outdoor Play: We are real people.
Kate’s started in effort to play all day long, because we believe that good play keeps the psyche happy, which in turn keeps our bodies and minds healthy! We like to support folks who also believe in the benefits of outdoor play, and help others to discover it too.
- Support Sustainable Organic Farming: Good, nutrient rich
food comes from the earth, and isn’t ruined with pesticides and preservatives. We use organic ingredients and want to ensure we can get these ingredients for years to come by supporting the farmers who share this standard.
We strive to stay true to our mission, continue to grow thoughtfully and responsibly, and enjoy the work we do! Thanks for supporting Kate’s. Now, go play outside with the food that fuels you!"
