We're on a mission to change the way you think about jam.
At Jamnation we use only local, organic fruit from family farms within 200 miles. Our jams have up to 50% more fruit and up to 50% less added sugar with no added pectin or preservatives. The result? The most intensely fruity jam you’ve ever tasted.
Each flavor uses globally inspired florals, herbs + spices to create a unique combination with a focus on sourcing, sustainability, and the pursuit of great flavors. More fruit. Less sugar. Damn good jam.
At Girl Meets Dirt, we offer handmade preserves from heritage, heirloom fruits grown in the San Juan Islands, classically crafted with just enough fair trade organic cane sugar, and herbs handpicked from our kitchen gardens.
The legacy and bounty of the orchard fruit on these islands and their capacity to feed this community for over 135 years is our inspiration. To keep the agricultural history of the San Juan Islands alive and support the orchard economy, we have stewardship arrangements with island growers, giving us access to the most deeply-rooted trees and a depth of taste not found in commercially-grown fruits.
Founded in 1909 as a farmer-owned cooperative, the Tillamook County Creamery Association (TCCA) prides itself on its commitment and mission to connect farmers and food lovers through better made dairy products. Guided by the belief that everyone deserves real food that makes them feel good every day, Tillamook has earned more than 750 awards for their cheese, ice cream, sour cream, butter and yogurt products made with unwavering values that never sacrifice or compromise quality for profit. The TCCA is currently made up of nearly 90 farming families, primarily based in Tillamook County, Oregon.
Cowgirl Creamery cheeses are sold to over 500 stores, independent cheese shops, farmers markets and restaurants, and nationally through Whole Foods Markets. And true to their community ethos, Tomales Bay Foods continues to support and promote artisan cheesemaking, offering over 200 cheeses from all over California, America and Europe through their website and retail locations. Two decades, dozens of awards, two creameries, four retail stores and two thousand tons of cheese later, it’s safe to say they’ve earned their 10-gallon hats.
From our base in Britain we travel the world to find authentic, delicious food that’s guaranteed free of nasty chemicals and grown by local farmers we know and trust. That’s been our approach since we started out in 2008 with just a small range of olives and a big dream. Of course finding great new ingredients isn’t easy, but our promise is to #keepdiscovering and it’s one we take very seriously.
