I’m Kathy also known as Kanning Kathy. I am a connoisseur of all things delicious. From ginger peach jams, flavored salts, margarita cupcakes, my passion is to create treats from my kitchen.  Many of my creations are award-winning.

When I am not in my kitchen working on new recipes, you can find me at the weekly, local Farmer’s Market. It is incredibly important to know where our food comes from, so I spend a lot of time getting to know and working closely with my farmers. They are a wealth of information and often help to inspire my new recipes. 

Not only do I love sharing the treats I make but also the skills I’ve learned in the kitchen. I teach canning, baking and cooking classes to anyone from my local 4H chapter to my grandchildren. 

I owe this business to my family. They championed the idea. They held the vision and saw the potential even when I couldn't. My son opened the world of horticulture to me through his passion for plants and trees. He was interested in farmers markets and fresh food from local farms long before me. His passion sparked my interest and inspired the basis for Kanning Kathy's philosophy. 


With encouragement, support and a bit of stubborn insistence from my family, I started my business, Kanning Kathy and what a wonderful journey it has been so far.
