Back Country products

Back Country vanilla and other products are produced by Jackie Emter, an energetic woman who lives on a mountain-top ranch near Reed Point.

In her spare time between raising 4 children and running an exercise studio in Big Timber, Jackie makes delicious pies, jams, and an award-winning relish. She has developed a technique to produce extracts -- starting with anise, lemon, and vanilla. Her handmade soaps include tantalizing scents like Montana Woodlands, Lilac, and Spring Bouquet. She spins, knits, and loves to adapt recipes into healthy versions.

All of Jackie's products are popular and sell well at the Big Timber farmers markets. Look for her booth when you're in town on a Tuesday or Saturday during market season. But you'll have to get there early -- Jackie's products sell out quickly.
