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 beginning we have expanded into the retail market. Many speciality markets and farm stands throughout Connecticut now carry Keifer's Kettle Korn. And 2014 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 and most of our speciality flavors (including garlic maple pepper, pumpkin spice, maple, and chocolate) is eight-allergen free. That means our products are:

* gluten-free
* dairy-free

Our Causes

Keifer's Kettle Korn is deeply involved in animal rights causes.




March's Animal Organization Spotlight

Pet Pals Northeast is one of our favorite animal rights organizations. Pet Pals is an all volunteer animal welfare organization. It is dedicated to the care and protection of homeless and abandoned animals.

We recently received the following beautiful praise from Pet Pals' Fay Beriau:

"As we close 2013 and enter into 2014, Pet Pals would like to thank the following for there help: Raina Spaziani of Keifer's Kettle Corn, P.A.W.'s,Whisker's Animal Shelter, and NECCOGG animal services Your dedication and love for animals is making a difference!! A special thanks to all our supporters and volunteers. Pet Pals fixed a record amount of cats in 2013 and helped many with food and medical care to those who could not afford it. It is only January 1 and we already have many calls for help. Only by working together can we make a difference in our community and all animals. There are many resolutions that people make every year and I am asking that you also make this one:
2014 needs to be the year for animals. Resolve to make a difference in the life of an animal. Foster, volunteer, share, support . 10,000 animals a day is killed in shelters in the United States. Only together can we reduce this number."
