Blake Hill Preserves, which is based in Grafton, Vermont, recently wowed the tastemakers behind the Good Food Awards, which awards artisan American food and beverage producers for taste and responsibility. Three of Blake Hill’s products’Raspberry & Hibiscus Jam; Grapefruit, Lemon & Thyme Marmalade, and Plum & Fennel Chutney’were honored as finalists in the Preserves category. This is a feat that Award organizers say is extremely unusual (for one company to have three products nominated in a single category). It is an accomplishment symbolic of this company’s incredible success in 2013:
1.’ ‘ ‘ ‘ ‘  Summer Fancy Foods Show: Company founders Vicky Allard and Joe Hanglin present at their first Fancy Foods Show in New York City, receive in person-praise from media icon Martha Stewart
2.’ ‘ ‘ ‘ ‘  Non-GMO Certification: Blake Hill Preserves is partnering with the Non-GMO Project to receive non-GMO certification
3.’ ‘ ‘ ‘ ‘  Kosher: Obtained kosher certification from the Orthodox Union, viewed as Best In Show by many of the media at Kosherfest
4.’ ‘ ‘ ‘ ‘  World Marmalade Competition: Orange, Lime & Ginger Marmalade wins award at the World Marmalade Competition in England’ 
Within the past few years, Blake Hill’s founders Vicky Allard and Joe Hanglin have started this company completely from scratch, and they continue to make every single jar of jam, chutney and marmalade by hand using local, seasonal fruit that they hand-pick and prep themselves.’ 
You can get Blake Hill Preserves’ at Healthy Living, Hunger Mountain, Brattleboro Food Coop’ in Vermont, and at close to 150 retailers in New England, including at over 20 Whole Foods Markets.
