New Jersey tomatoes are famous with one of the oldest traditions of growing tomatoes in the United States, and has a long legacy as the origin of many iconic tomato products. From the humble Jersey tomato, now-classic items like tomato ketchups and soups were started right here in the Garden State.
After demand was high at the farmstand at the end of their driveway, Theresa and Patrick started out in the fall of 2012 making their premium, all-natural ketchup available for purchase at New Jersey area stores. In addition to buying their tomatoes from New Jersey’s exceptional growers, they use the same high standards of transparency and safety for all of our ingredients. Spices are fair trade and organic when possible, the molasses and cane sugar fair trade and organic, the apple cider vinegar from a family-run company, and garlic is always sourced from California. Unlike many other brands, they use only trusted and fully traceable sources for their tomatoes and don't use shortcuts like tomato paste or concentrates -- they use only non-GMO ingredients, and our products often contain half as much sugar and salt as other brands if added at all.
