The grounds are very pretty, nature trails, wildlife garden, Mr & Mrs Swan and babies, museum, library - very peaceful and fun. I especially enjoyed... More

My niece and I booked the strawberry rhubarb jam class. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Everything needed was provided and clear instructions given by Nancy, who was also a great resource for information beyond the class. The class started punctually and it was great to meet new people and listen to their questions and stories. We left with 6 jars of... More

Lots of jam to choose from and touristy things. Just like any other jam store anywhere else in the U.S. Friendly staff.

We go every time we are on the cape as they make the BEST jams/jelly on the Cape. It is really nice when all the ladies are cooking. They have a degustation area and you can try some wonderful things. For small ones, do not miss the little exposition of Peter Rabbit. They have a few critters from the book,... More

Love this place. There is so much to do here and nothing is rushed. From walking through the peaceful gardens, looking at the wildlife in and around Smiling Pool, to visiting the jam kitchen and tasting some of the jams, jellies and preserves. This is a hidden Gem in East Sandwich, Mass.

Jams, jellies, pickles in the kitchen, Thorton Burgess' Peter Rabbit and his private library, and spectacular gardens, all in one stop! We visiting 20 years ago and there is a new animal center with a few animals, a rabbit, of course. Worth the trip! A donation is all that is asked. The gift shop has the jams and jellies, honey,...

Great trails, gift shop, programs for children. Mary the Director is a fabulous story teller. So many committed volunteers. Bring your children and grandchildren to build a strong appreciation for all nature has to offer!

The Green Briar Nature Center and Jam Kitchen is such a lovely spot! I think that we had as much fun looking around outside as we did inside. The grounds are really beautiful. During our visit the jam kitchen was not in action but even so we enjoyed walking through in envy. I would love a kitchen that big. The... More
