My vision started many years ago and came to fruition when my partner, Andrew, bought his farm, Ashe’ Spring. We live together on the farm and are in the process of creating a homesteading environment.
Ashe` Spring will soon become one of the main sources of fruit for Pick & Preserve. Until then, I am excited to work with local farms and the abundance of resources we have in the area. My goal is to work closely with, and get to know, each person and family who grow the beautiful produce we use. I also want to recognize and show appreciation for those who support our vision. We feel that these concepts are what will set us apart from the rest.
Pick & Preserve is not only about supporting the farm to table idea, but it’s also about the journey to know and share the process. Pick & Preserve is preserving a tradition of farming, canning, friendship, and partnership. We strive to keep our product small in batch, locally sourced, and use the best practices with the best ingredients. Check out our friends page to see all of the people involved, and our ingredients page to see our vision. Visit our Website for more information: Pick and Preserve on the web
