Here in Michigan I can find the best fruit and herbs. I'm so proud to be able to say that my artisan creations are Made in Michigan. It's right here that most of the ingredients used are grown locally and fresh each season.
It's been a little over a year since I started my business and I've had so much fun developing new and unique flavors with all of you in mind. I've enjoyed the experience and take pride in being able to pick most of the fruit used in every batch of one of my gourmet jellies and jams.
Whenever possible I pick organic. My herbs and 9 varieties of heirloom tomatoes come out of my own garden here on the property. If I'm not able to pick what I need, I buy fruit from the farmer's markets in West Michigan. I always look forward to your feedback in person at the market or an email after you've had a chance to taste some of unique creations. I do tastings monthly at The Butler Pantry in Saugatuck too.
While I prepare all of your favorites at Crane's Pie Pantry and Restaurant, I also pick all of the apples and peaches used right there at Crane's U-Pick in Fennville.
I pick the blueberries locally from several farms. My raspberries and strawberries I hand pick at at Earl's Farm Market. My rhubarb and boysenberries are picked fresh on the Palazzolo Farm in Ganges.
