“At Kate’s, we don’t skimp. Our wholesome energy bars are small batch made with organic ingredients.” For outdoor play deep into the backcountry or for grab-and-go sustenance, you can count on Kate’s whole food bars to deliver.
Long before Kate Schade became a business owner and whole foods advocate, she was a self-proclaimed ski bum. On her days off, she batched Tram Bars in her kitchen to fuel her adventurous on-the-go lifestyle. In line at 7:00 a.m., Kate would catch the first lift up at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, ski all day, then grab a quick shower before slinging Italian food in the evenings. With no spare time to prepare meals, she depended on her wholesome Tram Bars to sustain her through the day.
The Tram Bar recipe evolved over time (consistent with Kate’s cupboard availabilities) and with each tweak, the recipe perfected itself. Kate continued her routine; sometimes tossing bars to gawking, hung-over friends in the tramline. Still, she ignored her friends’ encouragement to start a viable Tram Bar business. “Too much work,” she confessed before dropping into a powder-filled couloir.
After years of poking and prodding by her sometimes-hostile comrades, Kate bit the bullet and became an entrepreneur. While still working her night job and spending summers managing farm workers at Cosmic Apple Gardens, a local CSA farm, she also dedicated her spare time to producing and selling her now famous Tram Bars. Kate’s time on the farm helped her adopt the conscious eating habits that shaped today’s organic bar recipes.
From the mountains to the farm, the origins of the Tram Bar shaped the company’s commitment to its roots. Kate’s Real Food strives to provide great products made with wholesome ingredients from responsible, organic farms. Kate’s bars make your mouth sing. And the complex blend of carbs and protein keep you playing…for hours!
“With the creation of a great, well-loved, successful company, we will be able to back our values of outdoor play and sustainable farming. This may mean rescuing land from development and turning it into an organic farm, or starting a foundation for organic farmers in need. It may mean helping to fund new trail development for all types of user groups, or simply maintaining the trails we have. There are so many possibilities to help foster what we consider the “roots” of Kate’s.”
