Laena McCarthy was raised in the Hudson Valley by a family who made traditional jams. And so, it was no surprise to them when, after a career in science and academia, Laena decided to pursue a career in fresh, local and creative foods. She founded Anarchy in a Jar in 2009, with her home base being in Brooklyn. The company makes a variety of shelf-stable jam’s, jelly’s, and mustards. The small-batch, artisanal mustards are handmade, and there are three different kinds to choose from. Her slogan is “The revolution starts in your mouth” and it is sold in retail shops.
