Buy Local offers/products/services:  I really do love what I do, from planting the plants to picking the product to bringing it to Mthe SM Farmers Market. I have been blessed in so many ways to be able to do it all. Making the preserves is a huge bonus! A real passion of mine! I never thought I would be a jam maker, but I love it! It started about 15 years ago with just two flavors, olallieberry and raspberry. I had excess fruit, I hate waste so I thought I would play around. My family loved it and that was the beginning! Today I make over 20 flavors and have new ones on the horizon.

Come visit me and my boys at Santa Monica Farmers Market on Wednesdays morning on the promenade and see our fresh produce and all our preserves.

We also buy local by supporting all of the other farmers at the lovely SM Farmers Market!
