Audra Lawlor started Girl Meets Dirt in 2013 with some excess plums in her yard, a desire to drop roots in her community, and a dream of deepening her connection with the land. Girl Meets Dirt’s heritage preserves are inspired by the history of orchard keeping on Orcas Island. Audra strives to provide the highest quality, locally sourced, organic fruit preserves — from jams to bitters and shrubs (Audra’s cocktail mixers).

Pro-tip: Try customer favorite jams: Rhubarb Lavender and Orcas Pear with Bay.

  1. I’ve bought shrubs and preserves from this company at the grocery store here on Orcas- they’ve all been delicious!
