Country Girl Jam by Kayterra Farms, featuring Old-Fashioned gourmet jams, pickles and pickled items made with all natural ingredients was created by the husband and wife team of Bill & Claudia Beach. Claudia, an Oklahoma native grew up growing and preserving food on a small farm in southeastern Oklahoma with her parents. In 2009, she and her husband bought a small farm and they began making gourmet jam and jellies in the summer of 2014 and selling them locally. It wasn’t until demand for their products in 2016 exceeded the ability to produce them… did she start to think of this as a real gourmet food business.
Claudia now leases the REI Commercial Kitchen full time, can do private label manufacturing and foodservice, and was honored in 2018 with the Rising Star Award from the Choctaw Nation. We are excited to hear their business story!
