Imagine plump, purple plums, bursting with sweet juice and wrapped in smooth, tender tartness. You can taste every last fruit in this magnificently dark jam.
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
Wondering the difference between jelly and jam? We’ll help you out: jelly is smoother and more transparent, while jam takes its pulpy texture from crushed fruit. While we’re big fans of both, jam is the perfect complement to bright, sweet plum, which borrows a faint tartness from its delicate purple skin. Dark and thick, each jar is a sun-soaked delight for all five senses.
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.
