Meet Brian and Laurie Olson, owners of Alaska Berries on the Alaskan Kenai Peninsula. Their desire to grow fruits and berries and create new products has fueled their passion to produce handcrafted Alaskan-made jams, syrup, and wines.

The Olsons used loans from USDA’s Farm Service Agency to expand their operation, including the additions of a commercial kitchen and a tasting room.
