Our Beginning

Back in the summer of 1954, Violet Slack made some jam from the wild blackberries that grew at that time along the dusty gravel roads. She and her husband, Earl, sold the jam door-to-door along with bakery goods and eggs from their farm, to tourists staying in cabins around the Lake Wisconsin area.  The jam was very popular, and soon the family was engaged in making several varieties and selling them by personal delivery, mail and in a few stores.


Times have changed, but the quality of our products remains unchanged. Now our products are sold in fine artisan retailers, apple orchards, pumpkin patches, and grocery stores in and around Wisconsin, as well as this website!

We invite to you visit our store overlooking beautiful Lake Wisconsin. You can order directly from us, or you may call for a mail order brochure which shows a complete listing of all our products: (800) 562-4804.  We also offer our products wholesale to retail establishments in our delivery area! (Please call for details.)
