Local, funky and full of fruit jam in small batches
Austin Jam Company was founded by Kelsey Schmertz. What started as a personal jam obsession has turned into Kelsey making jam in small batches from a commercial kitchen in South Austin. Kelsey frequents the local farmer's markets and began to notice all the jam flavors were basic and only available in a large format. Kelsey realized then that there was a space for her in this market.
She dreamed up a jam company to provide a smaller size jam in a variety of fun and interesting flavors. She wanted to provide a product that was easier to consume, great to gift, and the perfect complement to any cheese board. As a former baker, Kelsey uses her skills from cake fillings to make jam out of local and organic fruits, never adding commercial pectin. And so, Austin Jam Company was born, and Kelsey has been jammin' ever since.
