During the pandemic, I noticed many women changing their career paths to live fuller life with their families. As a tribute to this new era of entrepreneurial powerhouses entering the scene, I am starting a new series highlighting incredible women-owned businesses. I hope you will support them by sharing this post, telling a friend, and utilizing their services. Because, deep in my heart, I believe that we are all better together, and in this new season, small businesses will be the backbone of our society.
This week, I am featuring Flo Mina, who proves that with a little determination, you can truly break the mold and turn lemons into refreshing lemonade. However, in her case, she transforms fruits into luxurious treats—a unique gift for mothers, fathers, graduates, or just to treat yourself to some wholesome goodness.
Hi, I’m Flo Mina, and I have an exciting story to share about how I started my business. Growing up on a farm, I “hated” working in the field, so I would always find an excuse to go into the house and cook. Determined to get out of the field, I taught myself how to cook. One year, our berry bushes had a huge crop, so I learned how to make pies and jam. The taste was unforgettable.
Years later, at an event where a vendor was selling “homemade” jam, I got excited and tried it. Unfortunately, the taste wasn’t what I remembered, so I decided to make my own jellies and jams. Farm Girl Edibles was born! I sourced high-quality ingredients, including fruit from my own backyard, and perfected a handful of flavors. They are now co-packed (made by someone) in small quantities.
Farm Girl Edibles offers a variety of perfected flavors, including wine, jalapeño, raspberry, and fig. Each flavor is available in either a jelly or jam form, with options like Apple Merlot Jelly, Cranberry Chardonnay Jelly, Cherry Jalapeño Jelly, Cranberry Jalapeño Jelly, Sugarless Cranberry Jalapeño, Raspberry Jam, and Fig Jam. The Crackel is light and airy, perfect for snacking or as a topping on desserts and beverages.
Farm Girl Edibles is an excellent place to find unique and delicious gifts for any occasion, including Mother’s Day. Here are some gift ideas:
Breakfast in bed: Pair Farm Girl Edibles’ jams and jellies with fresh bread, scones, or muffins, and surprise your mom with a delicious breakfast in bed.
Cheese board: Create a charcuterie board featuring Farm Girl Edibles’ jellies. Add some crackers, nuts, and fruit for a beautiful and delicious snack.
Gift basket: Put together a gift basket filled with Farm Girl Edibles’ products, including jams, jellies, and Crackel. Add some fresh fruit, tea, or coffee for a thoughtful and delicious gift.
Farm Girl Edibles’ products can also be incorporated into recipes. For example, Cherry Jalapeño Jelly glazed on ham to add a unique flavor or making a tasty salad dressing. Any of her flavors can enhance your entrees, side dishes, and even beverages. With Farm Girl Edibles, you can enjoy authentic gourmet taste in every bite.
