About Us & Our Jam Preserves
Peck's of Maine represents a family tradition passed down over four generations of Peck jam preserves makers. Hand crafted in small batches, our products are all-natural, low in sugar and contain visible chunks of real fruit (The Way Jam Should Be, right)?!
Our jams have been a part of the Peck family history and reflect our mid-coastal Maine appreciation of seasonal fruits that grow wild. This is best reflected in the wild Maine blueberries and blackberries (our first two flavors) that are picked in late-July through mid-August each year and brought to Calverton, Long Island to make some awesome tasting jam preserves! The majority of our fruit come from local, east-end (Long Island) farms, picked as they come into season. Our mango and pineapple are imports....but these flavors were born out of customer requests that are now part of our regular jam varieties.
Being all-natural, our jams are free
of high fructose corn syrup, fruit syrups/concentrates, coloring dyes, artificial ingredients or preservatives. All of our jam preserves contain a larger ratio of hand-mashed/hand-cut fruit to cane sugar. We control our "low in sugar" jams by reducing the sugar content by 50-60% per batch. The result is a "fruit spread" quality jam preserve that is made to be enjoyed, not to gather dust on a shelf awaiting the zombie apocalypse (ok, we're huge "Walking Dead" fans).
Our seasonal varieties (see Menu page) are currently priced at $8.00 per 8 oz. jar or two for $15.00. Additionally, we offer "sampler packs,"
which contain three, 4 oz. jars of our available varieties clearly wrapped with seasonal bow. Holiday/seasonal gift baskets are also available for home delivery or shipping - outside LI the Nassau/Suffolk area. Purchases can be made at local craft fairs across the LI area (see our Where We'll Be Next page), at a locally owned specialty store/winery/farm stand, OR by submitting an online order (see our Contact Us page to do so).
Our company believes our customers' needs are of the utmost importance. Our growing team is committed to meeting your needs and exceeding your expectations. In fact, a large percentage of our business to date is from return "jam fan" customers and their referrals.
We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best quality, all-natural products and friendly customer service within the jam industry. Whether our jams greets you at breakfast, ramps up your yogurt,
blankets your grilled meat/poultry/fish, or adorns your ice cream or pastry dessert, please enjoy responsibly and we thank you for your patronage!!
