This buttery spread, balanced by a kiss of sweetness, is joy in a jar. With a bite of citrus and a creamy texture, it’s a cheerful yellow pick-me-up guaranteed to leave you and your tastebuds smiling.
Beth's Farm Kitchen was founded to support small farms in the Hudson Valley, and it has a 40-year history of helping women of color who want to enter the agriculture space.
Why we love it
Anyone who’s hosted tea parties for their toys knows that no fancy luncheon is complete without a heaping spoonful of lemon curd. It may have been imaginary back then, but this silky spread is everything we dreamed of and more. The creaminess of butter and eggs comes through in a tart, yolk-yellow blend almost as thick as vanilla pudding and just as sweet. More tea, Mr. Teddy? Please pass the jar.
How it does good
Small batches doing a lot of good
Beth Linskey founded her jam business on two passions: clean, delicious jellies and chutneys, made by hand in small batches, and supporting her Hudson Valley neighborhood. Almost forty years later, Beth’s Farm Kitchen is sticking to its founding ideals, sourcing simple ingredients from small, community farms and selling them in small, community businesses. Now BIPOC-owned, they partner primarily with woman- and family-owned growers, acting in their partners’ best interests with growing contracts and year-round aid. They set an example socially, hiring and educating women, immigrants, BIPOC, and people with a history of convictions. A zero-waste facility, they also support their community environmentally by maintaining a low carbon footprint.
supporting key causesBeth's Farm Kitchen has a history of supporting women on their staff, in their community, and via nonprofits. Beginning in 2021, they plan to donate a part of their profits to educating women of color pursuing a career in agriculture.
responsible sourcingBeth’s Farm Kitchen’s jams are 100% traceable to small, Hudson Valley farmers and producers. BFK supports their suppliers with growing contracts, providing them with reliable incomes to keep them in business beyond the growing season.
