Welcome to Trailblazer Foods
Trailblazer Foods was the vision of founder, Gary Walls, who started picking berries as a child in the fertile fields of the Willamette Valley. He continued his "berry education" in local fruit manufacturing plants and canneries. He eventually oversaw local berry fields and started his own small blueberry farm.
As a hobbyist, he developed the first fruit based syrups for Elmer's Pancake House and the Trailblazer dream became a reality!
