5 Locally-Made Jams


1. Ridge Ranch

Local owner Patrick Baker wanted to carry on the tradition of making jam the old-fashioned way. His jams are made by an old-order Mennonite family in the hills of Tennessee, heated over wood fires and canned by hand in small batches. A lot of the vegetables are even grown and harvested by families in the community. Shop at RidgeRanchProducts.com

2. Wee In TN

WEE is a family-based farm owned by Stacy and Kara, who both have multiple agricultural degrees from the University of Tennessee. WEE focuses on heirloom plants and vegetables canned in their certified kitchen. They have delivery routes beginning in April. Shop their online store at weeintn.org.

3. Smoky Mountain Farms

Smoky Mountain Farms Jelly House is located on Brookside Village Way in Gatlinburg. You’ll have to swing by or call (865) 436-4049 to get their jam, but you will have plenty to choose from.

4. Tennessee’s Best

Tennessee’s Best products are locally sourced and are made from whole foods.  This is important, as quality is what is preserved in their jars. You can purchase on their website at tennesseebest.com or call to order (865) 524-3915.

5. HoneyBerry Farm

Since 1995, Brenda Hubbell has been peddling her patented “Honey Jelly”. Since the combination of honey flavor and jelly texture is something most can’t imagine, she’s on a mission to get people to taste it. If you do, you’re sure to come back time and time again. You can find Honeyberry Farms at local farmers’ markets or shop their Etsy store.
