About Us

  In the summer of 2003, we went on a quest to find the perfect popcorn. Having once enjoyed kettle corn at a local event, we combed country fairs and farmer’s markets in search of the product we had so loved. But while we tried kettle corn by hundreds of vendors in fairs all over the northeast region, never once did we taste a product which met our expectations.Keifer’s Kettle Korn is the result of our quest to find that perfect kettle corn.

  Making the very best kettle corn starts with the quality of the ingredients. We tried every variety of gourmet mushroom corn available before finally settling on a top grade product from a small Nebraskan farm as our staple corn. Soy, canola, vegetable, sunflower and blended oils all fell short. Ultimately we found that pure, domestic sourced corn oil produced the very best product. When we ironed out our secret formula and finalized our process we realized that we had a truly exceptional product on our hands.

We realized we had something extraordinary...

We brought the same intensity and attention to detail that drove our selection of ingredients into every aspect of our operation and people responded. Overnight, it seemed, we developed a strong fan base among local markets and country fairgoers. The response we received from our first customers can only be described as extraordinary. With the support of our customers, we grew: from a single event operation, we expanded to become a major presence in the northeast regional country fair and farmer’s market community.

From those beginnings we have expanded into the retail market. Many speciality markets and farm stands throughout Connecticut now carry Keifer's Kettle Korn. And 2015 is poised to be a year of even greater growth as we open a new manufacturing location. Throughout this growth, our focus has remained the same: to produce the best quality kettle corn on Earth.

We believe that our product speaks for itself. One bite and you’ll understand why we call Keifer’s Kettle Korn a “highly addictive substance!"

Ingredients

We use on the highest quality ingredients in our products. We begin with magic mushroom popcorn kernels, designed to pop large and completely. The kernels are popped in 100% pure corn oil along with pure cane sugar, and a touch of salt and cinnamon. And to ensure you have the best product available, that is where we stop.
Pure, clean, and tasty!



Keifer's traditional kettle corn is eight-allergen free. That means our products are:

* gluten-free
* dairy-free
* nut-free (neither peanuts nor tree nuts are used in our products)
* soy-free
* egg-free
* fish and shellfish-free

Most of our speciality flavors, including garlic maple pepper, pumpkin spice, maple, jalapeño, and chocolate are also meet the criteria to be considered 8-allergen free.

Keifer's Kettle Korn meets Kosher and vegan requirements and we are currently entering the certification process for both.



Please ask about our speciality flavor ingredients should you have any dietary concerns.
