Beach Plum Jam with Chef Melissa McCullough

About Beach Plum Jam with Chef Melissa McCullough

Let’s ring in the season of beach plums together! Beach plums are grown in sandy soils and are typically seen on beach dunes along the East Coast. Given the Farm’s proximity to the shore and our sandy soils, beach plums grow well at the Farm. During this hands-on experience participants will learn to make their own beach plum jam, including harvesting from the Farm’s own plants.

Homemade pastries will also be available to sample your delicious jam.

Join us as we celebrate this special fruit! Each participant will take home their own jar of refrigerator ready jam to savor the season.
