If you're cruising along the Oregon Coast, there's a hidden gem you shouldn't miss. Misty Meadows Jams is a haven of the most delicious homemade jam and jelly in the region. Tucked just south of Bandon, on the east side of Highway 101, this family-operated farm has been crafting mouthwatering delights since 1971. And guess what? Their doors are open year round!

Misty Meadows isn't just about jams; it's a celebration of Oregon's bountiful fruits. From the juicy, tangy cranberries of Bandon to the farm's own fresh-picked blueberries available from July through September, every jar is a testament to the rich, natural flavors of the region. And let's not forget local favorites like huckleberry and marionberry jams, which are simply out of this world!

What makes their products stand out? It's all about authenticity and tradition. They stick to original recipes, shunning any artificial coloring agents, preservatives, or fillers like corn syrup. It's this commitment to purity that has longtime customers reminiscing about the jams and jellies their families made in days gone by.

Their product line is a showcase of Oregon's finest, with both domestic and wild fruits. The wild blackberries and huckleberries are particularly noteworthy. The huckleberry jam, with its thick, tart flavor, is a hard-to-find treat that often runs out fast. Trust me, it's worth trying!

They also have an amazing variety to choose from online or in store. The Apple Butter is a throwback to the old days, slowly cooked to caramelized perfection. The Oregon Cherry Butter? It's like cherry pie in a jar. And the Oregon Peach Butter, with its warm sweetness and secret spices, is like a hug in a spread.
