About Holm Made Toffee The Holm Made Toffee Company is founded on the principle of creating happiness - plain & simple. We love what we do and there is no greater feeling than bringing a smile to the face of a friend or loved one. We live for life's precious moments and in our own way seek to wrap up our own slice of happiness in every bag of Holm Made Toffee.
We're an artisan confectioner of the world's greatest toffee. But don't take our word for it - just try it. We've been making toffee the same way for over 25-years and plan on doing so for generations to come. And when it comes to making our toffee it's made with everything good.
The combination of Oregon hazelnuts, semi-sweet chocolate, butter and sugar is simply magical....you won't be disappointed! It melts in your mouth - a delightful, sweet experience. Learn more...

Why Buy Local?
Becoming a Locavore (or rather, a "Mostly-Locavore" when you live in Central Oregon) may sound like a daunting task, but it is a noble and rewarding one. There are myriad of benefits to eating and buying local goods:
Supporting farmers who grow for taste, diversity, and health vs transportation durability and uniformity
Creating local jobs vs supporting large corporate systems
Enhanced nutrition vs mineral/vitamin deficiencies
Robust, ever-changing flavors vs blandness and consistency
Sustainable farming practices and soil-rehabilitation vs pollution and soil degredation
