A really delightful organization to do business with. Their site is a view much like the past. They are very courteous when you visit, show you around, see a bit of the orchard and watch what ever canning process is going on at the time. Their products are exceptional, many of which are just unbeatable on the food market. I particularly like their large selection of marmalades, practically anything you can think or might want to see invented. Their other products include a wide assortment of canned and jarred fruits, veggies, and what have you. I particularly like the pears packed in a cinnamon syrup, a very different item I have never seen anywhere else. I have been shopping with them for over ten years. It has been a real pleasure whether in person when I was younger and now through the mail.
I am particular about my jams and marmalades, but the store portion of this farm has it all. Sweet marmalades, savory marmalades, spicy marmalades and tangy marmalades are all sold here. Many of them are produced from the fruits in their orchards. At the end of the picking season, Food Forward is invited to pick the excess fruit and give it to food banks.
We toured there last Saturday. Beautiful operation and their products are the best that I have ever tasted. On top of that they are friendly people.
One of a kind jam factory in the SGV hills. 4th generation in the family. FREE tours every Saturday morning! And the jams are killer.
