Ann’s Raspberry Farm – Brussels Sprout Relish

2011 Good Food Awards Pickles Winner

Ann’s Raspberry Farm specializes in berries and Brussels sprouts, a venture which began as a way to satisfy Ohio native Ann Trudel’s need for raspberry jam and her French-Canadian husband Daniel’s need to have steak with Brussels sprouts.  Now, they are known as “Brussels sprouts people.”  The farm is certified naturally grown, and although they are not certified organic, the Trudels use organic measures to cultivate and harvest all of their crops.  It is important for Ann and Daniel to support their surrounding community and farmers through educating the public about their farming practices and collaborating with local farmers.  Satisfying demand has proven to be a challenge as the farm gains local and national recognition.  All of their products are made one batch at a time, a procedure which requires a lot of berries and a lot of time to preserve the quality of the final product.  Ann and Daniel hope to double the amount of growing for next year.
