"I thought your cherry salsa was good, but the zesty cherry salsa really hits the spot. It is so fresh tasting and those little extra jalapenos in the recipe are perfect."
Bill D. - Portland, OR
"I now know why your zesty cherry salsa was voted #2 in America. It is great. The sweetness of the cherries offset the jalapeno spices. I will be stopping by your store in Elk Rapids to buy more next week. Please make sure you have a case in the back for me and make sure not to sell out before I get there. "

How Is It Made?

So let’s go ahead and get started with learning about “How It is Made”…
Why is Traverse Bay Farms an Expert for Fruit-Based Products?
Located in Northern Michigan, the epicenter of tart cherry farming and numerous other fruit and vegetables.
Traverse Bay Farms began with one goal in mind: delivering great-tasting, fruit-based gourmet products that can be enjoyed with every meal of the day. And to share them with the world!
Our hometown of Bellaire is located directly on the 45th Parallel North.
The 45th Parallel is commonly referred to as the “Goldilocks” scenario for farming since it is “not too hot and not too cold”.
That makes it "just right" for abundant healthy produce!
Much of the best fruits and
vegetables on the planet are grown along the 45th Parallel North.
So, we are very grateful to be able to use local cherries and as much local ingredients as possible. It means a lot!
Due to our belief in, and love for, what we do, Traverse Bay Farms has won 35+national food awards at America’s largest and most competitive food competitions! We are America’s #1 award winning super-fruit brand.
With winning 35+ national food awards, you know it has to be good!
How are the Tart Cherry Juice Concentrate and other Fruit Juices Made?
The secret to our tart cherry juice concentrate (and other fruit juice concentrates) is that all of our juices are bottled in small batches.
In a time where everything is about producing mass quantities of a product as fast as possible, we take a different approach.
We are putting the health benefits, antioxidant richness and flavor first.
We are putting our talent and skill in providing "truly great tasting" and "full of healthy goodness" fruit and veggie products!
But what does "Small Batch" really mean...
This means our products are produced more often to offer you a fresher product. This way we can closely monitor every step along the way, including selecting only premium sources to go into each of our juice concentrates.
You are able to taste the vivid flavor and enjoy the
condition-specific health benefits of the juice in every glass.
It's about using Montmorency cherries in our cherry juice concentrate
and USA grown fruit in our other juice concentrates. We never import our cherry juice from China, Turkey or Poland.
It's about slowing down and taking time to deliver a rich gourmet taste!
How are the Tart Cherry Capsules and Other Super Fruit Supplements Made?
Offering the special health benefits found within each fruit and vegetable is our most important accomplishment.
Getting those vitamins and nutrients into our bodies is the core to true health.
We use a proprietary process we call FruiTraction to capture the natural health benefits in our Fruit Advantage Tart Cherry Joint Formula, Tart Cherry Powder and other Fruit Advantage super fruit capsules and
The freeze-drying process starts with the whole-fruit including the
skin, the pulp and the juice of the fruit.
The FruiTraction process is
able to capture and condense the powerful condition-specific health
benefits found in the underlying fruit. You’ll know you’re getting the all-natural benefits of the fruit in a convenient, easy-to-swallow
How are the Dried Cherries and Other Dried Fruits Made?
After just one taste of our Dried Cherries and other dried fruit, you’ll love their moisture and full flavor.
They are packed in re-sealable bags so you can enjoy the wholesomeness and convenience of our dried cherries and other dried fruits in their many uses.
The proprietary processing technology used to create our dried cherries and other fruits is so unique, you can taste the difference in every
How are the Salsa, Jams, Barbeque Sauces and Other Gourmet Food Products Made?
The secret to our nationally award winning salsa, barbeque sauce, jams and mustards is just like our fruit juice concentrates. They are also produced in small batches.
This means, we closely monitor every step along the way. You will be able to taste the vivid flavors in every bite.
It's about knowing about the ingredient and talking with the farmers.
It means creating flavor combinations (both traditional and new) that flow together. It is not just adding extra ingredients because it is the "in" thing to do.
It's about slowing down and taking time to truly deliver a satisfying gourmet taste.
When you receive your order, you'll have the confidence of knowing you are about to enjoy great-tasting, healthy and nationally award winning
gourmet food products and dietary supplements.
You might want to share them with family, friends and co-workers. It's what we love to do!
