The Chronicle ~ Fresh is BackFriday, May 20, was the grand opening of the Goshen Farmers’ Market, and the weather couldn't have been better — full sun and blue sky, and, beneath, plenty of vendors selling homegrown and homemade items.
LunaGrown in Hudson Valley MagazineThese scrumptious jams by LunaGrown didn’t last long in our office. The holiday varieties are available through January. Flavors include Cranberry, Apple, Razzleberry, Raisin, Spiced Fig, Lemon Lavender Marmalade, and Orange Marmalade with Crystallized Ginger, all handmade in small batches.

A Cheaper Way to do Nutrition LabelsWhen Christopher Wilson needed Nutrition Facts labels for LunaGrown, his line of handmade jams, all his options were pricey and unappealing. Lab testing would cost several hundred dollars per product. Consultants and online services weren’t much cheaper. And software solutions cost thousands of dollars.
Hudson Valley Restaurant Week Fall 2015LunaGrown Jam is among the preferred purveyors for this years Hudson Valley Restaurant Week Launch on October 5th, 2015.
6 Local Blackberry and Apricot Jams"This season is all about the fresh fruits — especially blackberries and apricots, our two newest obsessions — that are ripe for the picking at the Valley’s many orchards and farms.
There’s a way to enjoy all that bounty when the temperatures begin to chill, too. Here, we list some of our favorite local jams"
Rhinebeck’s Grand CruLunaGrown mention in the Poughkeepsie Journal. LunaGrown proudly served by The Grand Cru Rhinebeck.
"Take a pretzel roll back to your table, but first order an artisan cheese and charcuterie board, served with bread, dates, almonds and the most delicious jam I’ve ever had, from the LunaGrown company."
Christopher Wilson on Creating a Rich LifeElizabeth Segran interviews LunaGrown's jam maker
"What I found is that there is a market for jam that tastes like it’s supposed to taste. People really are tired of the middle of the road processed stuff. People are changing the way they look at food in general, so while this is good for me and my product it also gives me opportunity to share what I have learned in regards to enjoying jam the way it was intended to be enjoyed."PDF Version
Jammin With The ManLunaGrown's Jam Maker get's noticed by the Valley Table 2014
"Christopher Wilson is a one-man jam guy. He started his company, LunaGrown Jam, three years ago when a friend's dog went missing, only to be found in a vast field of wild blueberries. The dog's name was Luna."
Adventures in Food & Wine PairingLunaGrown Rica Barreja gets reviewed 2014
"LunaGrown jams have an Old-World style that tastes like they’re made by a doting granny toiling in her kitchen. Rica Barreja is no exception, full of sweet and savory notes, it’s a perfect slather on crusty bread topped with a ..."
LunaGrown Jams the InternetPress Release 2014

Our mission to bring you a traditionally made jam product and retain a positive image remain strong. We are proud to begin expanding to cities and towns across America."
Chocolate Berry JamJam Recipe and tips from LunaGrown and Pomona's Pectin 2013
"Since it is that time of year for bees…. Sometimes open jam containers (anything sweet really) attract bees at otherwise fun and elegant functions. Fresh sliced cucumbers (preferably from the Farmer’s Market, not the grocery store) will keep bees at bay. Slice or carve the cucumbers at your intended function..."
LunaGrown ReviewA review by "Rachael's A World of Reviews, Giveaways, and More!" in April of 2014.
I like jam during the spring and summer seasons. I don't know why, but I do. What I really want to do at some point is learn how to cook with Jam. I was sent two different kinds of jams from LunaGrown and so far I've tried one of them. The other I need to find time and actually cook with it. All LunaGrown products are hand made. They contain no artificial flavors, colors, or additives. They are also low in sugar.
Jam it Up!LunaGrown Marmalade get noticed as a seedling product by Hudson Valley Wine 2012
"The time has come to give Marmalade a fair shake. Cooked and bottled by hand in the Hudson Valley. These jellies with bits of suspended fruit and rind are all grown up!"
Jam Review: LunaGrown JamLunaGrown Jam Review by Elizabeth Segran of FastCompany 2012
"Personality is palpable in every part of LunaGrown’s jams. Take the label, for instance. The bottle is peppered with interesting, eccentric details. There is a silhouette of dogs, surrounded by paisley and of course, a vivid image of the fruit in that particular bottle. The whole thing comes across as quirky and eclectic, bearing the mark of the jam’s maker." PDF Version
Sweet Transvestite, Jam and Vodka!LunaGrown's Rica Barreja gets noticed by Green Door Magazine 2014
"A standout local product Is Luna Grown jam from Cuddebackville, NY. Their signature jam Rica Barreja is heavenly."
