Blog: The Jam and Jelly Lady   -   Wednesday May 22, 2013   -   By Sonya

After 18 years of having babies, making jam, organizing farm markets, running a cannery, teaching new canners, and keeping a (mostly decent) house, I’m finally ready to make a change — a BIG change! So… No more farmer’s markets. A happy, and a sad decision....

Two New Canning Boot Camps Scheduled!

Blog: The Jam and Jelly Lady   -   Friday March 01, 2013   -   By Sonya
