Finally my closest Target has “the sauce”! I bought some yesterday! I love it! I really rather buy it at the Mercantile! Sorry Target!

so, all of your ingredients are grown & harvested from small farms in NY?
I’ve heard that a lot of the tomatoes for jarred sauces come from CA (lots of pesticides, GMO’s, etc).
the other reason why I ask is this: we have a semi-famous winery here in NC that produces NC wines. well, I recently found during a factory tour that a large % of their grapes come from CA, not NC!! they do put the fine print on the bottle.
having to supply all Target stores is a big undertaking.
I love your sauces, & other products I’ve purchased from you.
thanks for “keeping it real” & giving small farms the props they deserve.
I’ll be in NY in May & will try to stop by the store again.

Hi, Vallery. We use as many tomatoes from small farms as we can and then supplement with tomatoes grown on larger farms. However, all of the tomatoes we use are GMO free

Thanks for this timeline! I love to promote products that are a result of someone’s idea that things should be of high quality, made with the utmost regard to safety and health and without cutting corners to make an extra buck…greetings and admiration to everyone involved in the successful Mortgage Lifter project!

That was enjoyable seeing the process. For many years I grew my own tomatoes and made my own sauce so I know what hard work goes into it. Hope we will be able to get the sauce in CT soon. That tomato harvest was really wonderful! Sauce like this is well worth the price!

Before I read this, I thought $8.99 was awfully pricey for spaghetti sauce. Now that you have shared all that goes into a jar, I now say, “it’s only $8.99?!” Looks like a lot of good folks are involved in a truly handmade process. Thank you for sharing!

It may take us a while to solve everything, but as Albert Einstein says: “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”
