That's our jam

From FARM to TABLE! Food so good it will have you saying “that’s my jam!”

Hanover County Virginia Cooperative Extension hosted “Jam’n Jam” camp for kids to learn how our favorite foods get from the farm to our table. They visited Agriberry Farm to pick blackberries and raspberries, then headed to the kitchen to make jam, ice cream and popsicles!

We hope they saved us a bite!
