OUR JAMS WON AWARRDDDS!!!!! THIS IS SO EXCITING AHHHH! Blossom Meadow Farm Red Raspberry Jam won third place at the International Flavor Awards! With entries from 10 countries this year, competition for an International Flavor Award was fierce. All jams were judged blindly by a panel of restaurateurs, purveyors, manufacturers and members of the food-centric community.
Local jam competitions were also a source of pride this year. At the 45th annual Riverhead Country Fair, Blossom Meadow Farm Red Raspberry Jam won the first place ribbon in the raspberry jam category. Blossom Meadow Farm Strawberry Jam won the first place ribbon in the strawberry jam category. At the Hallockville Country Fair, our Black Raspberry Jam won the first place ribbon and our Strawberry Jam won the second place ribbon. All jams, jellies and marmalades at the Hallockville competition were judged together.
“We are beyond happy. A small farm brings unique challenges. These ribbons acknowledge our hard work, propel our jams to center stage, and help our farm flourish,” said farmer and jammer Laura Klahre.
