Our Winter Jamboree
In the height of summer, people often ask us at Seaquist Canning what occupies our winters. While Seaquist Orchards Farm Market is quiet, the Seaquist Processing is closed up tightly and the cherry and apple trees are taking a deep sleep, our canning kitchen is hosting a loud, fragrant and fun Jamboree. These are the months we have to prepare the many delicious jars of products you purchase all season long.
So what does our jamboree sound like? It is the sound of jars clanking, lids popping, music blasting and laughter. What does it smell like? It is almost indescribable! Today it smells like fragrant, sweet, mouthwatering raspberries. We can always tell the flavor of the day by the smell in the air. What does our jamboree look like? We have 7 full time staff working so hard to make and perfect each jar of jam, jelly, salsa and pie filling. We appreciate them so much! In just three weeks’ time that staff made over 36,000 jars of our top flavor, Chopped Cherry Jam. They are a super team! This week we are working on “small” flavors and then we move onto another top flavor, Cherry Pie Filling. This year we will make about 17,000 jars of our famous cherry pie filling.
The Seaquist family is very thankful that we are able to bring our fruit full circle, from our orchards to your kitchen. We hope that you taste the love and commitment in each bite of our products!
