Welcome to our 3rd Generation J.R. Watkins Family!
As a toddler one of the first things I remembered was the distinctive red Petro-Carbo can for everyday scrapes, cuts, insect bites and minor burns. It was always within easy reach in every family and friends' house we visited.
My grandparents started using J.R. Watkins products around 1910. They would often recount wonderful stories of the "Watkins Man" coming up their driveway with a large assortment of spices and the famous award winning cinnamon, vanilla and pepper products. My grandfather used J.R. Watkins original liniment after a long day in the field for aching muscles and joints, not only for himself but also his horses! My grandmother's cinnamon rolls were legendary, her recipe sought after by many. Her "secret" ingredients---J.R. Watkins Vanilla and Cinnamon!
Aunts and uncles, cousins and friends have carried on the J.R. Watkins products tradition for over 100 years--through the Great Depression, two World Wars, boom and bust cycles to the present day--that's quite a testament to their unique value in today's competitive environment.
The original J.R. Watkins products are still available today just as they were in my grandparents day, along with a whole host of additional award winning heritage medicinals, natural hand and body lotions, personal care products, cooking and baking spices and extracts.
Be sure and visit with the 21st Century "Watkins families" at local market nights, State and County fairs, Living Naturally parties or on the web. We're sure you'll enjoy the experience and products as much as our family and friends have for over a Century!
