SunnysideLOCAL is a Certified Naturally Grown farm. This means all fruit, herbs and vegetables used to produce our jams, pestos, candies and small baked goods are grown to organic standards without the use of pesticides. Our farm provides a wide variety of produce to choose from including, citrus, blueberries and strawberries, blackberries, peaches and nectarines, pomegranates, figs, peppers, tomatoes and herbs.
Our grove is blessed to be irrigated by Bear Valley Water, so in addition to farming pesticide-free, the fruit trees are irrigated with chemical free mountain water.
We craft Low Sugar Preserves. It is important to know that all of our jams and jellies contain less sugar than traditional preserves, often one to two-thirds less. We strive to make our preserves as organic as possible. This year our sweetners include only organic sugar, organic agave nectar and locally produced honey.
Shelf life for all canned items is one year. Since less sugar is used you may notice a color change starting at the top of the jar after about three months. There is nothing wrong with the jam. Sugar is what keeps color vibrant. For best results keep jars in cool, dark place. Always check the expiration date for best freshness. Refrigerate after opening and discard three to four weeks after opening. We craft all our delicious spreadable treats and preserved goods at a local commercial kitchen licensed and health permitted through San Bernardino County.
