Rivka Berman began canning by accident, with a need to make a large amount of holiday gifts, a lack of time, and a set budget. After several holiday seasons of people requesting jams not only for themselves, but to give as gifts as well, she decided to sit down and really consider what having a jam and jelly business would mean to her.
And with that Home Made by Rivka, located in Somersworth, NH, began. Rivka set out with the intentions of making wholesome and simple food the old fashioned way, but with a modern twist. Preserves made the way your grandparents and their parents would have made them, but for a modern palate.
Rivka always strives to run the business with beliefs that matter most to her: don't fix what isn't broken, keep food fun and (if possible) local, and getting your hands dirty is the best road to quality. She feels quality food should be more easily accessible to those who want the benefits of homemade, but can't spare the time or don't have the means. That's why Rivka works so hard to keep everything small batch made, quality focused, fun to eat, and community driven.
So whether you're looking for a pre-made or custom food item for wedding or party favors, a filler for gift baskets for someone special, or most importantly- a personal or family indulgence; Rivka believes you should be able to rest easy knowing your product was packed the way it should be.
Home Made by Rivka's small batch, homemade jam is featured in our NH Breakfast Box.
