Crofter's, Organic Strawberry Premium Spread - 235ml
Established in 1989 we are a family-owned organic food manufacturer located in Parry Sound, Ontario Canada. Where is that you ask? Well, it's a small town in northern Ontario, a few hours north of Toronto. There really is no better setting for an organic company. We are in the heart of the 30,000 Islands of Georgian Bay which is part of Lake Huron. With a rugged shoreline of granite and windswept pines, and inland lakes everywhere you turn, we are literally surrounded by natural beauty and wildlife which puts us in a great state of mind to create the best tasting organic fruit spreads possible. UNESCO has even recognized this unique part of the world by designating it a Biosphere Reserve.
Crofter's Food Ltd has been manufacturing organic products since the beginning of the trend toward organics. We continue to be family owned and now employ over 40 people making us one of the largest employers in the area.
Not all strawberries are created equal. Some are just right for eating but are too delicate for travel. Some are large and beautiful and able to withstand lengthy transport but perhaps are not quite so sweet or delicately textured. Some varieties are just perfect for jam.
Primarily we use Senga Sengana berries, a traditional European variety. Deep red and medium-sized, these heritage jam fruits are well suited for organic agricultural practices, as they’ve been grown on small farms throughout Europe far longer than farmers have been applying synthetic fertilizers to their fields. Senga Sengana plants don’t deliver the largest yields, but they do produce a perfect jam berry.
Beyond PB&J: Spoon onto Greek yogourt.
