Stopped in here to get some homemade Oregon jam to take back home with me. I would've bought more but I didn't have room in my luggage. I ended up buying a couple of smaller jars and then I bought one of their cocktail infusion...More

Cute town. Easy stop between wineries. Balsamic Strawberry is amazing. Wasn't open when it was supposed to be but shortly after staff arrived.

It sure didn't seem like it. The employee seemed so bored and uninterested that we were there. From the moment we walked in her back was to us and told us that there was nothing special in the shop.More

Wife and I went in and sampled DOZENS of jams, and were pleased with every one (okay, a few duds, but largely great!). We walked out with a few jars of our favorites, but the whole experience was a blast!

A lovely selection of unusual jam combinations to sample here; my favorite was the rhubarb rosemary. The jams are all very good and avoid the overly sweet ones made elsewhere.
