Celebrating our Love of Farmers


The National Processed Raspberry Council has kicked off a “Field to Frozen” video series that celebrates the passion that raspberry farmers have for growing this fragile fruit. With post-Valentine’s Day romance still lingering in the air and heart-health month in full swing, we encourage you to celebrate with us. We’d love for you to share your frozen raspberry-filled recipes or photos on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook by using the hashtag #RaspberryLovers. You can also subscribe to our YouTube channel.



Valentine’s Day may have come and gone, but if there’s an excuse to continue the celebration of love and chocolate’s perfect partner, raspberries, you can count us in.

The hardworking family farmers that grow and harvest raspberries and freeze them within hours after picking to allow us the sweet taste of summertime year-round deserve a little love after February 14th has passed. You’ll see in our video, “Family”– an ode to our farmers—that growing raspberries is a 12-month operation filled with its own unique challenges. There’s a lot of heritage and family tradition wrapped up in the raspberry industry, and our dedicated farmers were happy to share their passion of  growing and freezing raspberries with the world. Start by sharing the raspberry love, no matter the month or occasion, with our naturally sweet Love Your Heart Raspberry Frappe.
