Meet Our Farmers

"Local" isn't just a label at Locally Preserved. We pride ourselves on developing close partnerships with the hardworking men and women who grow, nurture, and harvest the ingredients we use in our products. It's a simple symbiotic relationship: they grow it, we buy it and turn it into something delicious. Whether it's a bumper crop of satsumas or flats of bruised fruit that won't sell at the farmers market, we buy based on the farm's greatest needs because we believe this is the best way to support their business.
