“It all started over a pan of biscuits and a jar of my mother’s Fig Preserves. My husband informed me that I should learn to make these, while my mother was still able to teach me.
Shortly after, I retired from the corporate world and had time for those lessons. She got me started and then I was scouring cookbooks and the internet for recipes for jams, jellies and pickles!
I signed up for my first farmer’s market in 2009. In 2014 we made the leap and added a processing kitchen to our farm. In the first 2 years, I have processed over 10,000 jars. That number alone just blows my mind.
Now, I am venturing out into the wholesale world in great little shops like this!”
