That’S My Jam Episode 3

That’s My Jam | lovingly and intuitively crafted jams and marmalades

The Short Summary: I was born to JAM

The long answer lies in those moments when you taste something so delicious that you instinctually pause the moment it hits your tastebuds.  Those moments when that flavor passes right through your tongue directly into your soul, making your eyes roll into the back of your head. Making you inhale immediately and deeply, only to let it out a slow, satisfied sigh as the corners of your mouth turn upward into a smile. Those are the moments I live for. And those are the moments I jam for.

Creating That’s My Jam is a calling home for me in many ways. I’ve always enjoyed farming, fresh produce, and making delicious food to share with people, and that’s exactly what That’s My Jam is all about. I grew up in rural Pennsylvania both farming and preserving food since before I can remember.  I moved to New York City over six years ago and while my farming and preserving was put on hold, I was exposed to new cuisines and complex layering of flavors that have made their way into my jams.

It was a happy accident that I got back into making jams. One summer when I was about to head out to a berry patch to pick, I realized I had a few jars of jam from the previous year that I was never going to finish them myself. I shared them with others, and everyone raved about them, saying it was the best jam they’ve ever tasted because it wasn’t overly sweet and the flavor of the fruit was the star. At the time I was working at an Afternoon Tea Salon on the Lower East Side, and the owner said I should make jam to be served with tea. Before I knew it, I had a small jam business growing and That’s My Jam was born.

What We Need 

We’re looking to raise $1500, which will cover:

  • That’s My Farm, a berry garden that will provide all the delicious fruit once it’s reached maturity
  • Jars, Labels, Pectin, Website fees
  • Legal fees to be able to sell online rather than just farmer’s markets

Non-Monetary ways you can help, which are equally as helpful:

  • Introductions to owners of farmer’s market stands who would be interested in selling my jam
  • Donate your overabundance of fruit from the tree in your back yard if you have one
  • TO TRY IT! Seriously. I need you to know how amazing this stuff is.
  • Share this campaigns with your friends.

What You Get

  • Jam, which equals infinite pleasure and happiness
  • To have a positive impact on the Earth by supporting a woman whose main goal is to take care of Mother Earth through sustainable farming practices and beekeeping (read The Impact for more info)
  • infinite thanks and gratitude, as well as a special place in my heart

The Impact

In addition to spreading pleasure and happiness, you will also be supporting local agriculture and earth-friendly farming processes. 

While experimenting with jam recipes and flavor combinations, I learned that the secret to exquisite jams is to use exquisite fruit. There’s nothing like a fresh berry picked at peak ripeness. No matter how hard a person tries, they can’t recreate the perfection Mother Nature has already produced. That’s why I never try to outsmart her. I simply let her be my inspiration and guide. I simply want to showcase her beauty through jam.

With this realization, I saw an opportunity for That’s My Jam to not only be about creating mouth-watering jams, but also to use it as a platform to learn more about and implement earth-friendly farming practices and eventually beekeeping and composting. Mother Earth needs people caring for her more than ever, so the heart of That’s My Jam is to be a spokesperson for Mother Earth through sharing how to care for the planet and also showcasing her beauty through exquisitely crafted jams.  These two things combined created my vision for the growth of That’s My Jam. 

Risks & Challenges

Really there are none. I’m going to keep doing this no matter what, but it would certainly be easier if you helped out.
