Utopia’s Water

Utopia is blessed with the purest water in Texas. The water supply comes directly from fresh, spring fed and limestone-filtered water that feeds into the beautiful Sabinal river. We’re thrilled that the New Canaan Farms HQ is housed inside an old water plant that for thirty years bottled this water to share with the rest of Texas, and that this magical water is an essential part of every jam, salsa and sauce that we make.
