Farmers Market Profile: Holm Made Toffee

Holm Made Toffee is a small, family-run business in Bend, Oregon, which was started by Donna Holm as a hobby once she retired from teaching in 2007. She had been making toffee for decades and it always got rave reviews. Fairly soon, it became a family affair and the company has grown slowly but surely through word-of-mouth and participation in numerous markets and events across the state. You can also find their toffees in 40+ stores in the Pacific NW. While Donna still produces all the batches by hand, her daughter-in-law Randi runs the sales, marketing and events. (They are often joined by her other children and grandchildren who like to help!)

Holm Made Toffee

Every bag of Holm Made Toffee is a work of art. Donna’s been making toffee from her recipe for more than 25 years and it is so good, there’s no need to change it for generations to come! She puts in a combination of Oregon grown hazelnuts, semi-sweet chocolate, butter and sugar for a magical, delightful and sweet result.

Randi said, “This is our fifth summer in a row participating in the NorthWest Crossing Farmers Market. We LOVE this market because we get to meet lots of new faces each week – as well as see familiar ones. It is a great connection for us with our ‘fans’ and we love hearing stories from our customers on why they are purchasing our candy and where it gets to travel!”
