Joel and Tom Hallett started Hallett Farms over 30 years ago with a strawberry and raspberry farm in Otis Orchards, WA. Since fruit was strictly a seasonal item, the brothers decided to start making candies to support their families year-round. The first candy they developed was a soft peanut brittle known as Peanut Butter Crunch. Joel took over the candy business and went on to create over 120 different chocolates and candies. When the Kane family purchased the company in 2004, Joel and his wife, Jennifer, offered to come out of retirement to continue to produce the same high quality candies. Almost 10 years later Halletts has gone on to develop new delectable confections such as the popular Grey Sea Salt Caramels and Habanero Caramels.
