The lady that helped us was so nice, she kept offering us samples. Great idea! We had to buy some of their huckleberry and chocolate fudge, it was sooo good. Great selection of gifts, and prices were pretty reasonable.

If you're downtown Bigfork Eva Gates is a must see. So charming and friendly. The best Huckleberry Preserves and syrup. I like to buy the baking mixes also. Great gifts to send at Christmas.

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.
