After living practically across the street from the Green Briar Nature Center for 8 years I recently went to a jam making session. What a great time I had! I make jam in my own kitchen but, still was able to learn and come away with several jars of Pear,Apple, Cranberry jam and it is a big hit here at... More

On an autumn trip to Cape Cod, my husband and I stopped in here, hoping to buy some jam. But we ended up spending ages here! We love old libraries, so the Thornton W Burgess library was a lovely place to sit and read for a while. The little gallery with his books and an exhibition about surf fishing was... More

This property was the setting for the stories of Peter Rabbit and friends, written in the late 18th Century. I've taken a nephew to walk the paths of Peter Rabbit, as well as choose from a library of these books for his early reading. There is an entire program for nature education for the little ones also. Inside art and... More

What a quaint and interesting place to visit. And the variety of jams, jellies, chutney's, etc. is outstanding. It is a place I would like to take time to visit again, and make my own jam or jelly. There is something to be learned here, about Thornton Burgess, and just loved the live bunnies who live there.

It was raining so we only went to the Jam Kitchen and that was interesting to watch them prepare jams and relishes. The kitchen is open and the smell was wonderful. Watch out if you have small children because the pans and burners are all within their reach.

Although they had just finished making the jams, we still enjoyed visiting this little nature spot. Good place for children to walk around and don't forget to check out the bunnies. A great gift shop with all the jams there for tasting too.

My friend was here many years before with children & said he thought I'd enjoy it. It was so lovely. A house with animals, lovely walking paths. We were able to sit on adirondack chairs in the late afternoon sun & just enjoy the overall peacefulness, beauty & birds. First we did tour the kitchen. We walked in and a... More

Went there to drop off jam jars to get them out of Mom's cramped apartment. I am from Naples Florida and have never met a ruder bunch of people in my life. Was sent all over the place. Told I couldn't see lady Mom recommended without paying $4 admission fee. Then told kitchen was closed but took bag without a... More
