Thane & Cari Tagge's Famous Fruit

Fruit They Grow
- SWEET CHERRIES
As a boy, Thayne Tagge would come to Bear Lake to water-ski with his family each summer. He knew how wonderful the Bear Lake Raspberries were and decided one summer to bring some to Salt Lake to sell.
He was dating Cari at the time and she had just gotten back from Israel study abroad. He suggested she bring down some raspberries too. The Bear Lake Raspberry season would last only 2 to 3 weeks each August. In 1982 Thayne would go up each morning and pick up 50 cases of raspberries and sell them in sugarhouse.
Cari was not a morning person (she is now) and would go up to Bear Lake each night and sleep in her mom’s station wagon. She would bring down 50 cases of raspberries to the old 7-11 in Holladay (now Great Harvest Bread). They would back up their cars, open the trunks and put up banner paper that would read Fresh Bear Lake Raspberries.
They were married in 1983 and continued to bring fresh Bear Lake Raspberries to Salt Lake each summer. They originally named their business Berry Nice and have continued to sell at these two locations for the last 25 years.... read more
