Girl Meets Dirt Heritage Preserves are inspired by the long history of orchard keeping on Orcas Island…and a craving for the highest quality, locally sourced, organic fruit preserves nature and careful craft can provide. Our throwback jams, shrubs and bitters are made in an old-school style that emphasizes structure and pure, ripe, naturally grown fruit.
Our ingredient lists are short and sweet. We don’t use commercial pectin and rely on time & concentration for set. We believe island heritage fruit speaks for itself. We pair single varietal fruit, many from trees that have been producing for over a century, with fair trade organic cane sugar, organic lemon, and classically prepare it by hand-in seasoned copper pans–in our island kitchen.
