Jams & Jellies
At this time, we do not make quantities large enough to sell wholesale. Plus, all our value added products are made in our home kitchen under the Minnesota Cottage Food Law.
We started making jams and jellies with our organic fruits because the flavors were exceptional. They have been so popular that we have expanded our jam and jelly selection. All jams and jellies are 1/2 pints, made with our organic fruits and organic cane sugar.
Joyce uses Sure Jell (low sugar) pectin so the fruit flavors really shine. Most of the recipes are for berry jams using 6 1/2 cups of chopped fruit and 4 1/2 cups of sugar with 1 box of Sure Jell. We abide by the MN Cottage Food Law and have registered and taken the appropriate trainings. Food safety is important to us when we make our delicious jams, jellies, and juices. All jars are processed in a hot water bath canner.
All our jams are made in our non-state licensed kitchen. Jim, Joyce, Natalie, and Ben are registered MN Cottage Food Producers and good food safety practices are in place, both at the farm level and in our kitchen. For instance, we use a lot of stainless steel equipment, wash hands frequently, and use hydrogen peroxide as a sanitizer. Our fruits are low pH, so they are at much less risk for contamination.
