“Found It !”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Being in the Flathead Lake area for 5 days you find yourself craving Flathead Lake cherries and Swan Lake huckleberries.
My wife was looking all over for cherry jam to take home. We found everything we couldn't find anywhere else a Eva Gates Preserves.

“Send home a taste of Bigfork Montana”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The preserves that are produced in the Eva Gates kitchen have been sent to almost every state in the country over the past fifty years or so. They have consistently been a favorite of ours. The huckleberry flavor is particularly good on ice cream, but is also tasty on toast. These jams and jellies have proven to be great Christmas gifts as well.

“Mmmmmmmm”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We first went to Eva Gates 20 years ago, and it has not changed. We have traveled all over the U.S., and these are the best preserves we have ever had. It's fun to walk around Bigfork, but it wouldn't be worth the trip with this shop.

“Jammin' Jam!”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

I have been going to Eva Gates since the 60's--though they have updated the building. It is a stop we make whenever in the area--the blackcap jam and syrup is fantastic! They do need to update their website that says they are open 7 days a week tho!
