beautiful and delicious with our

Please be assured that we continue
to take every precaution to ensure our guest's safety.  Masks are still required except while seated and eating,
and our seating is generously distanced.

All tastings and orders will be pre-paid
by non-refundable reservation.

Market hours through Christmas Eve:
Monday - Saturday, 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.


Please visit our catalogue page to see the lovely gift boxes available in our market and online.
While there are some gifts that must be shipped, it always adds a special touch for you to deliver
them in person. When you visit our market with its potbelly stove and our historic 1802 barn,
it will add a wonderful background story to the gifts that you bring your family, friends,
and business colleagues.

In light of staffing shortages, we are doing our utmost to process orders in a timely fashion.

A homespun gift of five delicious jams sent to your families far away.
Made here in our Western New York countryside from the fruits gathered in our orchards
and handmade in our kitchens using our family's heritage recipes.

Five of our favorite jams cooked from this year's excellent harvest:

Blackberry Blueberry Jam
A newer flavor that encompasses the excitement and freshness of summer.

Raspberry Pear Preserves
Made with our creamy Bartlett pears at their perfect ripeness in mid fall,
blended with our autumn red raspberries.

Cinnamon Honey Apple Spread
Our tangy apple butter with a hint of whipped honey.

Plum Elegant
A blend of plums spiced just a bit with cinnamon and cloves - perfect to accompany a holiday turkey.

Cherry Almond Preserves
Includes the American Mont Morency tart cherry which is one of the remarkable delicacies of the world.

These exquisite preserves are nestled in our long, Italian apple paper gift box, tied with moss green gros grain ribbons and decorated with the gatherings of the autumn landscape.
