Bill Jackson grew up on the same farm he now lives on in Livingston, Texas. He operates Jackson Fruit Farm where he exclusively raises May Hawthorn trees - commonly known as mayhaw. Mayhaws produce a small berry that ranges in color from yellow to bright red. Long used to make jelly, mayhaw was once a culinary staple throughout parts of the rural South - notably swamp lands in East Texas, Louisiana and Georgia.

Bill Jackson gives us a glimpse into the process of producing Mayhaw Jelly along with childhood memories of growing up on the farm.
