This is what the Good Food organization people wrote about the event: "The winners harken from 36 states and 141 cities, having risen to the top amongst 2,095 entries in a Blind Tasting with 250 judges held in September. The highest scoring entries were submitted to a rigorous vetting process to verify they met the sustainability and social responsibility criteria to win a Good Food Awards – with over three dozen ultimately disqualified. This year’s winners represent the forefront of American craft food and drink, making products that are delicious, respectful of the environment, and connected to communities and cultural traditions."
Hooray for The Red Hen and thanks to all of you for your kindness, inspiration, flavor ideas, feedback and business over the years. Thanks, as well, to my amazing family and especially my grandfather, Lawrence Bailard, for planting and maintaining such amazing fruit and citrus and for allowing me to make my jam from it.
