About The Maker

About Girl Meets Dirt

(Eastsound, Orcas Island, Washington)

Just shy of 10 years in Manhattan,  Audra Lawlor walked away from a Wall Street career and convenient city life with her  new husband Gerry and two dogs to head West, and start their own (island) Western story.  They landed on Orcas Island, and Audra noticed the heirloom orchards and their fruit not being used. She started making jams, and preserves and Girl Meets Dirt was born.  It is essentially a onewoman show with tremendous support from her husband. Lawlor sources all her fruit from the San Juans, exchanging pruning work for the Bartlett pears from her neighbor’s trees and offering islanders a place to sell their Italian plums or crab apples each fall. She travels to nearby Guemes Island to purchase quinces that make their way into her quince marmalade. Now fruit finds her through word of mouth. If you visit their shop, they offer informal tastings on a daily basis and welcome you to come by during business hours, to see what's cookin', and shop the full lineup of Girl Meets Dirt preserves - including limited edition goodies from their Small Batch Reserve Collection.
