Melon Blossom Honey
No, we didn’t infuse the honey with melon juices… Rather, our bee hives are located right in the middle of our melon fields, which means the bees primarily pollinate melon blossoms, giving the honey an amazingly rich, full, and unique flavour. As an added bonus, it is unpasteurized, which means it can play an important role in the lives of those who live near the farm and suffer from seasonal allergies. Our honey is extracted and bottled right here on the farm!
Jams, Jellies, Pickles & Sauces
Our jams, jellies, pickles, and sauces are produced at a nearby processing company called Roothams Gourmet Preserves. At the moment, we don't have a Public Health-approved kitchen space, so the processing is outsourced.
However, all of the produce being jammed, jellied, pickled, and sauced is 100% Thames River Melons!
Jams & Jelly
We currently have blueberry, strawberry, raspberry, and strawberry-rhubarb jam available for sale! Perfect for your morning toast, or on top of a freshly baked scone!
On the jelly side of things, we have a Roasted Onion and Garlic Scape jelly available. We like to compare this to red pepper jelly. It has a wonderful sweet & savoury flavour combination, and tastes great on top of a cracker slathered with cream cheese. It can also be used as a marinade for meat or veggies, or as part of a salad dressing!
