Prize-Winning Artisan-Crafted Gourmet Preserves

Our old-fashioned (no pectin added), small batch preserves are made from organic or no-spray fruits sourced from farmers markets, CropMobster, local stores, and friends’ backyards….which means our inventory is always changing.The rest of our ingredients are organic (when available), so you can serve the best to your family & guests!

Our preserves make GREAT gifts! Check individual listings to see what’s in stock. If an item is out-of-stock (OS), check the description to see when we will be making it again. To arrange a taste-testing (which pairs beautifully with a cheese tasting…if you need a party idea!), email us or call: 800-307-3564.
