Heidi’s Strawberry Jam is a new addition to Heidi’s Raspberry Farm family!
The luscious strawberries used to make Heidi's Strawberry Jam are Oregon strawberries which are grown in the Willamette Valley. Surrounded by mountains on three sides, the Willamette Valley has the perfect combination of fertile alluvial soil and pristine mountain water to grow premium strawberries that are sweet, red and juicy.
The rich, volcanic soil deposited at the end of the last Ice Age is continuously topped up by the flow of the valley’s waterways, which run clean and clear from the surrounding mountains.
As they grow, the berries stay on the plants and ripen slowly, allowing the sugars to increase before being picked at exactly the right time. These ripe, delicious berries are harvested by hand to keep them as perfect as possible as to be used in Heidi's Strawberry Jam.
The strawberries are slowly cooked to ensure that the vitamins and beautiful color of the natural fruit are preserved for your enjoyment. Heidi and her team hand make and package each batch of jam with loving care in her Albuquerque kitchen.
Heidi's jam is delicious and healthy. It is vegan, gluten-free and made only from certified organic ingredients.
The jam has only seven grams of sugar per tablespoon, which actually is about one third the amount used by others. Without all of the unnecessary processed sugar that dominates so many jams, Heidi's Strawberry Jam lets you taste and really enjoy the real flavor of the sun-kissed, organic fruit used to make it. A serving of Heidi's jam has 30 calories; the average commercial jam has 50 calories per serving.

ABOUT HEIDI AND HER RASPBERRY FARM
Born in Lawrence, Kansas, Heidi Eleftheriou came to New Mexico when she was three. She grew up going on field trips with her dad's graduate students from the Department of Biology at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. She got to know the Sonoran Desert of Mexico pretty well, too, through those trips.
Heidi lived in Amsterdam for a few years, during which time she also traveled to Afghanistan. Then, she came back to Corrales, New Mexico, and met her Greek husband, Stavros. In 1975, they started working together in his garage-based jewelry business. After her second child was born, at the age of 48, Heidi made the decision to start her own business — Heidi's Raspberry Farm.
Heidi has been selling her jams, fresh raspberries and cut flowers at the local farmers markets in Santa Fe, Corrales & Albuquerque since 2001. Her jams have a loyal and growing following, and they grace the shelves of good food shops in New Mexico.
Travelers to New Mexico have been smitten by Heidi's jams, and because of their happy tastebuds and enthusiastic word-of-mouth, she has devoted fans across the country. We are very excited and our tastebuds are very, very happy to be carrying Heidi's jams at Pretty Things & Cool Stuff!
Heidi's Raspberry Farm believes strongly in giving back, and it helps support numerous community organizations in New Mexico. Heidi also believes strongly in sustainability, which includes working with a local beekeeper to maintain healthy hives in the farm's fields with honeybees to pollinate the raspberry blossoms.
Heidi's farm is located in Corrales, NM, (north of Albuquerque) which is a unique agricultural village located on the western bank of the Rio Grande River, and she is committed to sustaining the rich agricultural history of the area.
Heidi has received numerous awards including “Organic Farmer of the Year” from the New Mexico Department of Agriculture and has been recognized as a "Local Hero" and "Favorite Food Artisan" multiple times by Edible Magazine.
