Fred Berckefeldt / Leonard Mountain, Inc.
Hometown: Leonard, OK
Fred Berckefeldt founded Leonard Mountain in 1992 with the goals of making delicious gourmet food and providing great customer service. For the past 25 years, his business has grown and grown, constantly offering new products that are conceived, created and manufactured at their rural Oklahoma facility. From quality food selection, to customized packaging, to offering employment in an area where many can’t drive to the city for work, Fred has been committed to doing gourmet his way.
Leonard Mountain is best known for their award-winning dry soup mixes that are high in nutrition and low in prep time, along with their hand-stuffed queen olives filled with everything from almonds to bleu cheese. With other delicacies that include chili, fruit and vegetable dips, pasta salads, breads and hot sauces, there’s something for everyone in the Leonard Mountain kitchen. Whether you’re looking to fill your own pantry or choose the perfect gift for a friend, stop by the Leonard Mountain booth at a Sugarloaf craft show to meet Fred and sample some of the finest packaged artisan food.
