Hopefully you’ve heard about our new “Mortgage Lifter Heirloom Tomato Pasta Sauce.”

We’re hoping it launches a movement towards building a brand that supports American small farms. Part of how that can happen is if you enjoy the sauce on a regular basis in your home.

So we’re starting something called “Farm-Fed Fridays.” When every Friday night families incorporate small farm-produced foods into their dinner menus. Naturally, we’d love our Mortgage Lifter Heirloom Tomato Pasta Sauce to be a part of that meal, along with other healthy stuff from your local Farmers Market.

But, let’s face it, it could get really boring to have spaghetti and pasta sauce every week. So we’re starting a recipe contest.

We want you to develop a recipe using our Mortgage Lifter Heirloom Tomato Pasta Sauce, and email it to us!

Could be your family’s famous Chicken Parm. Or a vegetarian Lasagne. Even a soup or stew. It just has to use the Mortgage Lifter Heirloom Tomato Pasta Sauce. (If anyone comes up with a dessert recipe we’ll be really impressed.)

We’ll select one recipe each week, and make it ourselves.

Yep. We’ll cook it right here in the Beekman kitchen, and post the photo and recipes on Facebook and here on the site. With your name and story, of course.

(We’ll post recipes on Wednesdays so that you have time to buy what you need to make Farm-Fed Friday Dinner.)

So get a jar. Get creative. And Email us  your recipe!

I would love to order the sauce but I need to know if it contains celery. I am highly allergic so I just wanted to make sure!


For those who have to avoid pasta because of the high glycemic value, the fabulous MLHT Pasta Sauce can star in an easy to prepare meal of baked spaghetti squash with meatballs. Buy the meatballs freshly made from Whole Foods to make it even easier. A great dish when the day just doesn’t leave time to cook.

TWO thumbs up on the tomato sauce. Would definitely buy it again!

Hey guys! I love a great pasta sauce, but as we age, we are becoming sodium conscious. I found a really delicious pasta sauce at Whole Foods, I think it’s called Jersey – and it is low in sodium. What is the sodium content in this sauce? – if you don’t mind me asking.


I think I may have a simple, tasty recipe. As soon as my jars arrive I’ll try in out and let you know. Thank you, Josh and Brent! You are inspiring so many of us to live more thoughtfully.


Oh, what scathingly brilliant ideas you’ve put in my head. Jars ordered. Now I have a plan for my upcoming staycation: baking. 🙂

I’ve ordered a case of sauce and hope I can conjure up some great recipes. I love what you guys represent and how you are trying to elevate your communities, both in Sharon Springs and on line. Keep up the great work! You inspire me!

What a great idea! I will get mine organized to send soon–our satellite internet has been down since August on our KY ridge and I anxiously await DSL installation (finally) so have not been checking blogs (or blogging) much. Just saw your Facebook post and will order. All best to you up in Sharon Springs! Catherine Pond


Can’t wait for my order of a dozen jars to arrive. I have a dessert recipe in mind to try!!!


Ordered my jars earlier today. I’m love the recipe sharing and Farm Fed Friday’s idea! Can’t wait for them to arrive and get started! I have some family recipies I’d like to try with you sauce.
