Products and services:
I make handcrafted herbal fruit jams and simple syrups that can be used in teas, sorbets, sodas, and cocktails.
Why did you decide to start this type of business?
In 2010 I entered a contest which was run by Garden and Gun magazine. I entered my strawberry basil jam and won. So that’s when the business started and it’s been going strong since.
What accomplishments are you most proud of as this business owner?
I appreciate the support and growth of my customer base. It’s a lot of work and without that, it wouldn’t be possible. I’m also proud that my products were featured by Oprah as “one of her favorite things” in a 2012 issue. That was incredibly special.
What sets you apart from other businesses that people might support?
My motto is “Love Thy Farmer.” We are a SC Certified company, meaning that we use only local produce and that supports South Carolina farmers and the state economy. I’m also proud that each flavor of my jams and syrups are 100% all natural, gluten free, and handcrafted in small batches. They are made with real fruit juice and no preservatives.
