Wildflower Confections founder and owner, Barbara, has enjoyed reading recipes, cooking and baking since her years were in the single digits...and with a focus on sweet treats! She shared her creative results with some Napa Valley foodie friends...and you know what comes next...the response encouraged her to turn her hobby into a small business. Small business entrepreneurship was ingrained from growing up in rural Montana as part of a family run business, so Barbara began Bala's Kitchen and received a friendly and approving welcome in the Napa Valley. She lay this creative endeavor down for a nap when other enticing opportunities in the dynamic Napa Valley hospitality industry beckoned.
After working with numerous top-notch professionals in Napa and Sonoma and growing in the knowledge of and appreciation for Wine Country epicurean delights, sweet dreams led to the reawakening of her creations under the name of Wildflower Confections. Now at home again in the beautiful Bitterroot Valley with a Wildflower Confections & Boutique storefront in the iconic town of Darby, Montana, Wildflower Confections is dipping chocolates, cooking toffee, and baking other specialty food items including the nutritious Flower Power Energy Bar in regular and gluten/lactose/peanut-free. Barbara's creative experiments have proven that old methods modified with newly discovered healthier ingredients produce the best chocolates, candies, and specialty food items, and she consistently stays on the cutting edge of new product ingredients as they become available so that her products continue to advance from exquisite to even better.
These high quality treats are available alongside many unique and special Montana-made artisan items. She thinks that the broad and beautiful Montana vistas inspire the best artistic creations in all mediums, from painting, clay, and wood, to skin care and specialty foods...and the products in her store do seem to verify this!
