Heidi’s Raspberry Jam starts with hand selected raspberries grown in Corrales, New Mexico. The jam is made in small batches, by hand with loving care. We slowly cook the raspberries to a brief boil. This method ensures that the vitamins and beautiful color of the natural fruit are preserved for your enjoyment. Heidi developed this delicious low-sugar recipe in her kitchen at home. Our jam is inspected and approved by the State of New Mexico Environmental Department.
We have been selling our organic raspberry jam, fresh raspberries and cut flowers at the local Farmers’ Markets in Santa Fe, Corrales and Albuquerque for several years. This allows us personal contact with our wonderful customers and we are so grateful for the many friends we have made over the years!
All of our fruit is selected for its unique flavor, sweetness, texture and color. We are Organic Producers, certified by the New Mexico Department of Agriculture. This means that there are no artificial fertilizers and no pesticides or herbicides used on our fields. We are pleased to work with a local beekeeper to provide a refuge for healthy hives in the field, and the honeybees pollinate the raspberry blossoms. A flock of native Rio Grande turkeys control the insect population amongst the hedge rows, and provide endless entertainment for us and all of our visitors. You would be shocked at all the different kinds of noises a turkey makes!
Corrales is a unique agricultural village, farmed by small families who have been living here for generations. Located on the Western bank of the Rio Grande, Corrales has been farmed for hundreds of years. Subsequent populations of Spanish, French and Italian families settled here to raise grapes, apples, livestock and now raspberries! Having grown up in this special place has made Heidi sensitive to the environmental needs of the community. Heidi's Raspberry Farm is committed to sustaining the land in healthy condition for future generations, and to preserve the rich agricultural heritage of the Rio Grande Valley.
