With fast food restaurants on every corner, and grocery stores full of highly processed foods, it's time for something different.
It's time for real food. Food that takes you back to Grandma's kitchen.
Food that makes you want to sit down with the people you love and enjoy a home cooked meal.
You’ve probably noticed the horse and buggy on our jar label and wondered if we’re Amish or Mennonite.
The simple answer is yes, but there’s more to explain.
My ancestors were Amish while my husband Ernie’s ancestors were Mennonite. The Old Order Amish and Mennonites in many communities still maintain a very traditional lifestyle, including using horse and buggy as an important form of transportation.
While we now use cars and trucks to get from point A to point B, we’re still a part of a faith community here in North Texas with strong ties to our Amish and Mennonite roots.
One of our traditions is to offer a prayer of thanks before we eat a meal.
So the next time you’re sitting down with your family and you notice the horse and buggy on our jar, take a moment to thank God for the good things in life.
On every jar we include the German phrase “Das ist gut!”
It's Pennsylvania Dutch for “This is good!”
By including it on our jar, it's a way for us to honor our Mennonite culture and heritage and to share a little piece of our family traditions with you.
We hope that when you spread our handmade strawberry jam on a piece of fresh bread, or spread some blackberry jam on a pancake, you can’t help but say, “Wow, that’s some good stuff!”
Unfortunately, glass jars are heavy. Depending on the location, shipping fees can easily reach $15. Since we can't offer completely free shipping, we did the next best thing:
Made it low cost, and flat rate.
Regardless of where you live in the U.S., or how many jars you buy, shipping is only $8 (with a minimum order of 4 jars).
