Blue Ridge Jams has been making gourmet specialty food products in NC since 1961, using a small batch manufacturing process. What is a "Small Batch" process? It simply means that all of our products are made in small batches that come out to less than 18 jars each batch. The gourmet products are hand stirred, hand poured, and made the same way your grandparents would have made them the old fashioned way over 70 years ago. These products are not made in mass quantities using machines, and the taste reflect the process. A delight in every bit, our gourmet jam, jelly, and preserves will keep your family begging for more.
We make our products as naturally as we can the old fashioned homemade way just like your grandmother would have 100 years ago, with each product hand stirred, hand poured, and sealed with care. There are no machines or modern contraptions getting in the way of the delicious taste of our gourmet food products. All of products are made using a small batch technique, meaning that each batch only makes approximately 18 jars. Originally owned and operated by Linda Justus, who passed away in 2016, our family has been making the finest gourmet foods products in Western North Carolina for 55 years. We appreciate our three gourmet food kitchens independently owned and operated by members of our family for providing the best products available in North Carolina, Thanks go out to Sugar Shack, Dana Fancy Foods, and Jones Salsa for the excellent products.
