Sqirl get their plump blackberries from Pudwill Farms, who harvests large amounts of berries and who’s always at the Santa Monica Farmers Market, rain or shine! Their Meyer lemons comes from Rancho del Sol, the first farmers ever used at Sqirl! They started in March of 2011, and these citrus farmers are in Jamul, Ca—close to San Diego and Mexico, and they had llamas on their holistic property and, since they weren’t at the Farmers Market, Jessica would drive there to get our citrus. Now they send their produce to the Santa Monica Farmers Market just for Sqirl to pick up! Rancho del Sol grows the widest amount of citrus varieties alongside of Mud Creek. You'll love the marriage of these juicy blackberries with the floral and more fragrant Meyer lemon. This jam is easy to love.
Jam is the Sqirl creation story. Now an internationally recognized breakfast + lunch restaurant in Virgil Village, Los Angeles, Sqirl started as a tiny jam company. And everything since then has radiated from our jam-making genesis. Sqirl jam has become much more than capturing in-season, of-the-moment fruit. It has always connected us to the seasons, to the farmers. And now, more than a decade later, it's a holistic part of everything we do every day. The journey of a piece of fruit from flower to jar touches many hands: at the farm, within our kitchen, and finally to wherever a jar is squirreled away. Sqirl jam is meant to celebrate each one of those hands. We: - Directly support 40+ local fruit farmers in California, all within a 350 mile radius of Sqirl's kitchen - Only use fresh fruit: always organic or from farmers with thoughtful farming practices - Never use frozen fruit or packaged purees or commercial pectin - Only use Wholesome Sweetener Organic Sugar - Make all jam in-house at a state of the art wholesale manufacturing facility under a Processed Food Registration License. (We do not co-pack.) - Monthly profit share with our entire team of jam makers - Are dedicated to preserving unique + rare varieties of produce - Intentionally purchase entire crops of farmers’ fruit that do not have a home in restaurant kitchens due to the current pandemic - Are nut free + gluten free
