"Spread a little summertime on your toast." That used to be the tag line for one of our very the first products we ever made at Cascadian Farm: Fresh Berry Freezer Jams. If you've ever had our berry jam, you'd know that nothing else quite brings out the flavor of fresh, organic fruit. Freezer jams are a little different than what you may be used to seeing on the grocery store shelves. Since these jams use fresh fruits, they need be used quickly, or be kept in the freezer until you’re ready to use them (hence the name “Freezer Jams”).
It wasn’t long after Gene Kahn dropped out of grad school and leased the plot of land that’s now our home farm that we had a whole crop of fresh strawberries, raspberries, and eventually blueberries too. At times we had more berries than we could use at home or sell at the market; producing jams & jellies seemed to be a natural side-effect of our new life as organic berry farmers. Before long, we were selling freezer jams, and Strawberry Fruit Spreads at the Pike Place market in Seattle. From there, we were able to grow Cascadian Farm and we now have our fruit spreads in co-ops and grocery stores across the country!
We don't know about you but right now, in the dead of winter, we sure could use a little summertime on our toast. While we can't offer you fresh fruit this time of year (stop by our farm in Washington from late June through August), we can offer you a little summertime with our Fruit Spreads.
