I started small by making a couple of batches of jam every now in my home kitchen. It was easy to work around the baby’s schedule in that way. From there, I started doing small craft fairs in the Beaverton area. I loved introducing people to my jams and becoming a delicious and nutritious part of their meals. I loved talking about and sampling out the “fruits” of my labor! Now, I am challenged with growing my business, yet maintaining my founding ideals of using simple ingredients to make a simply delicious product. Even though I can make 200+ jars at a time in a huge steam kettle, and am looking for retail opportunities outside of the farmer’s markets, I want to keep the business personal and personable.
