SWEET JAMMING

fantastic place to buy great jams and jellies and if you are lucky enough to be there in time, they will teach you how to make it. Loved the whole place.

Jams, jellies, pickles in the kitchen, Thorton Burgess' Peter Rabbit and his private library, and spectacular gardens, all in one stop! We visiting 20 years ago and there is a new animal center with a few animals, a rabbit, of course. Worth the trip! A donation is all that is asked. The gift shop has the jams and jellies, honey,...

Great trails, gift shop, programs for children. Mary the Director is a fabulous story teller. So many committed volunteers. Bring your children and grandchildren to build a strong appreciation for all nature has to offer!

The Green Briar Nature Center and Jam Kitchen is such a lovely spot! I think that we had as much fun looking around outside as we did inside. The grounds are really beautiful. During our visit the jam kitchen was not in action but even so we enjoyed walking through in envy. I would love a kitchen that big. The... More

I made my first trip to Green Briar Nature Center and Jam Kitchen, located in East Sandwich, Massachusetts, on October 21, 2013. On that trip, we visited the small museum, took the nature walk on the grounds, visited the gift shop, and looked around the Jam Kitchen. On my return trip on July 8, 2015, my friend Linda and I...

The natural setting that inspired the Peter Rabbit and shining pond stories is this beautiful property in Sandwich. The jams produced on site are remarkable as well. A gem, truly.

Amid the delicious smells from the jam kitchen, take the time to stroll through a library and display room of Thornton Burgess memorabilia. If you're familiar with his stories you'll feel like a kid again. If the world and stories of Thornton Burgess are new to you, ask the librarian to find "The Most Beautiful Thing in the World" for...

Green Briar offers many programs of interest to all ages. My children have attended special events such as Night time Halloween forest walks and kayak overnights. The staff makes each event special. I have enjoyed jam making workshops with my children and with adult groups. It is wonderful to be able to say you made your own jam. The grounds... More

I booked a private jam-making class at Green Briar for a late April bachelorette party weekend on the Cape. It turned out to be the highlight of our trip! Our instructor, Nancy, greeted us warmly and showed us into a gorgeous, quaint, country kitchen where we could see strawberries, rhubarb, and jam pots waiting! We had the place to ourselves... More
