Join Our Team


At Girl Meets Dirt, we make single-varietal preserves with heritage fruit, to celebrate this special terroir (the 'girl' in our logo holds the native Orcas pear-discovered growing wild on Orcas). The legacy of orchards in the San Juan Islands and their capacity to feed this community for over 135 years is our inspiration. To keep the agricultural history alive we steward island orchards with the most deeply-rooted trees, offering a depth of taste not found in commercially-grown fruits. We have a growing wholesale and distribution business with specialty food, cheese shops, & grocers across the country. We also have a retail shop, a growing online store and do weekly seasonal farmers markets in San Juan County. We are a proud 7x Good Food Awards Winner and pride ourselves in making exceptional, unique, handcrafted preserves. Woman-owned and operated, island grown.
