Flora & Farmer
Flora & Farmer believes it’s the little things in life that bring the most joy.
A fresh bouquet of flowers, the warmth of the sun on your skin in the spring, the perfect cup of coffee, or a luscious spread, bursting with flavour on your morning toast.
We believe in whole, real food and preserving heritage cooking traditions with a fun, inspired edge. We focus on balanced flavours and quality ingredients with sustainability and your health in mind. We source locally and organic or naturally grown when possible, and never use artificial flavours, extracts or preservatives.
We’re proud to be one of few companies in Canada to generally avoid using pectin or thickeners and shocking amounts of sugar in our spreads. Instead, we boil the fruit with companion herbs, spices and a modest amount of sweetener at a high temperature for hours, reducing it to a luxurious, fruit-forward spread. Each jar has a minimum of a half-pound of fruit, for a concentrated, low sugar preserve.
We see the value in handmade and work in smaller batches, hand pouring, capping and labelling each jar in our own certified facility. Each is inspected throughout these processes with detail to quality and safety.
We create delightfully daring preserves your Grandma never made!
Our flavours may be more adventurous than hers, but we make them the same way as she (or her grandma) did, and that’s what defines us.
Working in smaller batches, and combining produce with bold but complimentary herbs, spices, and liquors, we strive to enhance the natural flavours while honouring the integrity of the harvest.
All our artisanal preserves are handmade, handpoured and packaged in our own Winnipeg production facility, visible from our storefront, Preserve.
