We Be Jamin’
Description: We Be Jamin’ Farms cultivates native Arizona plants like prickly pear cactus and mesquite trees from our farm. We grind the mesquite pods to blend the nutty and nutritious sweet meal that incorporates into spice rubs, sauces, jelly and syrup. We harvest prickly pear fruit every year to produce our famous jellies and syrups. And, as if that were not enough to keep me busy, I have been pickling cucumbers, beets and making relish to compliment my line of preserves for the past three summers. All of these products are made using wholesome ingredients such as pure cane sugar, fresh pesticide-free fruits, and natural pectin.
