Meet Theresa Adams, a daughter of a career Navy father and a beautiful music teacher mother. She came along as a little sister, changing the family landscape for her older sister, Tina, who is still her biggest fan. Life is life, often beyond our understanding, and at 5 years old, along with her sister and father, they moved to Illinois to be close to her grandparents after losing her mother to cancer.
Spending time on a midwest farm as a young girl granted her a sweet memory of riding horses, snapping beans, and watching apple butter simmer in a copper kettle. This memory unfolded into a homemade gift-giving tradition as a college student years later, and as fate would have it, her craft became known as ‘Adams Apple’ Butter upon marrying an Adams after finishing college. They had two healthy boys who eventually played a part in the apple kingdom. The gift of Adams Apple Butter became so popular with friends and family over the next two decades that she realized it was time to offer her award-winning spread to customers around the country who now proclaim “it tastes like memories.” The Adams Apple product line continues to grow with her original recipes, each of which include an apple ingredient to stay true to the brand.
