Aldrich Farms History: We are a small family farm located in Bellingham, Washington. Since our start, making jelly out of the fruit from a few backyard berry bushes, our goal has always been to make the highest quality gourmet jellies and jams available. Over the years we have added more fields, expanded production, and worked to add more variety to our product lineup, but we have never lost our focus on quality. Richard Buford, the owner of Aldrich Farms, can be found working at all hours of the day as he follows his berries from field, to jar, to market. We believe that you’ll be able to taste the difference that his passion and attention to quality makes.
Production: With a great view of Mount Baker, our berries start their lives in dark Whatcom county soil. They’re never sprayed or chemically fertilized, and the moment our berries are ripe, they’re hand picked and brought to our on-site kitchen. Once at the kitchen, the berries are processed into our unique line jellies, jams, mustards, and sauces without every having been frozen. During a busy harvest season, the kitchen often runs around the clock for days on end as we rush to capture the peak flavor of our fruits. It’s an extremely trying ordeal for the whole Aldrich farms team, but we believe it is an essential part of our focus on producing the highest quality jellies and jams available. You don’t have to take our word for it either: many Aldrich Farms products have won awards, and many of our customers have been with us since we started selling our products over ten years ago.
We’re passionate about our products, and we hope that they brighten your life a little bit too.
