About Us


As young people growing up on farms in northeastern Nebraska, we had always picked the wild fruits that grew along the roadsides and in pastures - the chokecherries, mulberries, elderberries, crab apples, and wild plums. As we grew older, we continued to pick the fruits and made jams and jellies to give as gifts to family and friends. Everyone enjoyed our jams and jellies and wanted more.

We began to produce our fine products commercially in 1980 - the outgrowth of a hobby. Our jams, jellies, butters, spreads, and syrups are, in fact, made according to old family recipes enjoyed and handed down for several generations. We have more than forty flavors.

Batches are carefully measured, weighed, and hand stirred in large kettles. We use no artificial flavorings or preservatives. What you taste in our products is the pure, natural fruit with a smidgen of love in each jar.

Grandpa designed the wooden gift crates and for years assembled every crate we sold.

It is very satisfying to be able to perpetuate a tradition of wholesome, homemade jams, jellies, butters, spreads and syrups. It is gratifying to know what we had taken for granted and lavishly enjoyed as part of our rural heritage is indeed the same as many people remember fondly and are eager to enjoy again. We hope you enjoy our products.
