Forty years ago, Enid and Fred Stettner found themselves driving on a beautiful quiet country road in the northwest corner of the Hudson Valley in New York State. They drove upon an early 19th century colonial, clapboard farmhouse surrounded by rolling hills, creeks, a pond, big red barns, and a spectacular view of the mountains.
They bought the farm and added 400 acres, horses, cows, sheep, and chickens. In the 1980s, Enid developed a plan for a food business she had dreamed about for many years.
In the 1990s, their daughter Ann and her husband joined the business and they launched a new line of products consisting of chutneys, fruit spreads, sauces, vinaigrettes, mustards, balsamic vinegars, and pasta toppings. They spent hundreds of hours perfecting the new recipes.
Although Wild Thymes has grown throughout the years, they still make every single product by hand in small batches on their farm. And you can taste it—every bite is like something you just picked fresh from your own garden.
