“Life is better than death, I believe, if only because it is less boring, and because it has fresh peaches in it.” – Alice Walker
The connection from food to farm isn’t lost on Regina Nekola Hild. Growing up on her family’s 200-acre centurion farm in Iowa, she learned how much hard work went into each ingredient on her plate. Regina spent much of these early years with her mother in the kitchen, where she not only excelled but also discovered her passion for the culinary arts.
After a career in business, Regina decided to pursue that passion and attend culinary school. She founded Regina’s Farm Kitchen in 2016 in her Dunwoody, GA, kitchen with a focus on making jams, spreadable fruits, and baked goods using locally grown Georgia produce. Her meticulously sourced ingredients and skill in the kitchen resulted in food with award-winning flavor (her Strawberry Blueberry Jalapeño jam won a 2018 Good Food Award).
We are so excited to feature Regina’s Farm Kitchen Peach Vanilla Bean Fruit Spread as our May 2020 Featured Jam. Already a staple in our pantries, we love it in (or on) ice creams, cookie recipes, or spooned onto our favorite baked goods. This summertime in a jar is available while supplies last á la carte and in recommended PB&J and AB&J pairings.
