We are a benefit corporation committed to impacting our community and supporting families. Our jams taste like they were made by mom because we give jobs to single mothers who were having trouble finding work. Some of our employees used to be homeless and are getting back on their feet, others are disabled but all of them are loving moms with a passion for cooking. We teach the time-honored process and hand crafted values of our company to every employee.

THE #1 REASON FOR A FAMILY TO EXPERIENCE HOMELESSNESS IS UNEMPLOYED PARENTS

 
 

AND SOME INFORMATION ON FOOD WASTE

Whenever possible we get our produce from surplus sources. The fruits are still perfectly good and fresh but because they are in over abundance they are at risk for being wasted. We pick stuff from markets, distributors, farms and other places in the community before they are discarded. We make most of our limited edition products using this method. By doing this we have used food waste to create jobs for single moms in tough situations.

WE STARTED THINKING IF WE COULD GET THE VALUE OF THAT FOOD TO PARENTS IN EMERGENCY SITUATIONS IT COULD MAKE A REAL IMPACT!

OUR DELICIOUS SOLUTIONS TO THESE PROBLEMS

We craft artisan jams, jellies and marmalade. We love being creative and inventing new flavors of jam for you to try. Each jar is filled, caped, polished and labeled completely by hand to preserve the integrity of our products. We promise a homemade taste with a commercial quality. Everything about our process from the space we cook into our recipes and even our labels are inspected and approved by the Utah Department of Food and Agriculture.
