Crock & Jar is dedicated to supporting our community by increasing the amount of local food we buy seasonally. Crock and Jar creates its own unique products, using the best of locally available produce and teaches techniques of food preservation (fermentation, pickling and canning) to inspire others to use these methods in order to buy more local food in season and preserve it for the leaner months.
