September 24th and 25th

I have been remiss in posting. That is because I have neglected to take the camera to the farm market!

Here are some shots from 2 weekends ago.

A few Less Vendors

There are a few less vendors now the summer is over and the kids are back in school.


And its been so hot, we have had to put up a tarp on the side of the tent to keep the sun off the jars!

And the wasps! Just call me the Wasp Lady! They LOVE our products!

Last weekend was slow. The Rock Creek Fall Fair was on and people just drove on by. However, those that came were in the mood to buy. The river is too low to tube. We think too many farmers and Big White take too much water out of the poor old Kettle River.

Lowest I've Seen it

This is the lowest I’ve seen it in the last 20 years. We need some rain! Now that it is fall, we have had cool nights and mornings but it still can get hot in the afternoon.

We are all caught up on Strawberry Jalapeno Barbeque Sauce and Blueberry Garlic Jelly. This week we will have new:

  • Beet Horseradish – this stuff is a blend of beets, sweet peppers, garlic, vinegar  and – you guessed it – horseradish.
  • Margarita Jam – I don’t usually make this in the summer, I usually go for the fresh fruit, but I’ve has soooo many requests
  • Pina Colada Jam – ditto above
  • Tequila Jalapeno Jelly – I can’t seem to make enough of this stuff!
  • Apricot, Pepper, Onion and Garlic Jam – this stuff is sinfully good!
  • Fresh Peach Muffins
  • and Tarts. I have not yet decided what to make yet.

Oh yes, Stop on buy and try Dave’s Killer Tomato Juice!



PS Yes we are taking orders for Christmas! The form will be up on the site soon.


About badkowalik

Prepared by hand and cooked in small batches – our preserves are cooked slowly. There is an average of 1.5 pounds of fruit in every 8 oz jar. Not only can you taste the difference – you can see the difference. Beautiful natural color and unmatched textures – that can only be achieved by the patience and experience of the Confiseur (the maker). There is alchemy to what we do. Like fine wines, each season has it’s own specific style. We create preserves with exceptional taste. Capturing these flavors is the craft of our business. Beary Good Stuff is a collection of seasonal, sustainable, artisinally made preserves. The collection is made (in limited quantities) from local fruits using traditional cooking methods. We use the freshest ingredients we can get. The small batch production insures a taste and texture that is unmatched in the commercial market today. The collection includes preserved fruits & vegetables – marmalades, jams, fruit butters & salsas, pickles and gift collections that reflect the bounty of the season and spirit of feasting. Although not necessary yet, we have received a letter from the BC Heath Authority. We submitted a package detailing how and where we made our products, what each recipe contains and how we prepare it. This letter is displayed in our tent at the Farm Market. We have our BC MarketSafe and FoodSafe certifications.
