Berry Lovers!

Berry Lovers…Jacobs Family Berry Farm just received news that their bee keeper (LS Bees) has harvested about 500 more pounds of honey from this property. He says “ these bees have gone absolutely nuts”. This is good news as many of you have been picking some of this up and enjoying it. 

More good news…they just finished putting up 90 jars of jam. They now have three varieties: Blackberry, Red Raspberry, and now a Mixed Berry (both raspberry & blackberry). The flavor is terrific with the berries now at peak flavor, it makes the jam even more special. Price is $10 for a 6.4 ounce (190ml) container. Each jar has nearly a full pint of berries and low sugar. Our recipe is 70% berries, 26% sugar, and 4% pectin.

Also, they're picking berries daily and getting 4-6 flats per day. Anyone who is interested in making their own jam or freeze for the winter, this is a good time to get berries as the flavor is wonderful. They're not sure how long this year’s harvest will continue…hopefully for another month, but Nevada’s weather can change.

Thanks for your continued support. They're having a great berry season because you have come to their farm. Let us know if there are any better ways we can serve you. We also enjoy the interesting conversations with you when you stop by.
