One of the few places in Intercourse that is open on Sunday, this is a must for jellies, jams, and other goodies - - like chips, spaghetti sauce, canned veggies. Plenty of samples to try just about everything. Enjoy.

And there were actual Amish people working in the store, unlike over at the Kitchen Kettle shopping mall. This is a large, bright store set up for you taste lots of different types of canned fruits and vegetables. There are a few great varieties of peanut butter, too. There are salsas, a meatloaf sauce, and spaghetti sauce (really good but... More

Any item that can be put into a jar is here. They have a very clean and neat store. Stop in and get a jar of goodness and stock your pantry. A creative person could also buy a bunch of goodies and create a nice gift basket.

We love the pickles,dips, and dressings available here. The samples allow you to try before you buy. The staff packs the glass jars carefully so the jars make it home unbroken.

First of all I hate pickles but my wife doesn't - she came away with bread pickles (whatever they are) for herself and her mother which she seemed very happy about - probably because I was paying for them !! I did however buy a large jar of peaches with a nice label in it !! A great choice of... More

My wife made a raid on the canning company our next to last day in town. She brought back several tasty goodies. They have a large showroom and good selection available. Worth the visit.

The building is new and clean however, I wasn't impressed with anything available here. I was hoping from the name of the establishment that they would offer unique canning supplies. Not the case. Just food in jars, dip mixes, and souvenirs. Suggestion: if you want to appeal to your customers, have samples available of EVERYTHING you sell. I will not... More

Hello, We're sorry to hear you were not satisfied with your recent visit. Lots of people love our samples and we are firm believers in "trying before you buy". If there is a specific product you would like to try, we would be glad open a fresh jar for you, even if it is not being sampled at the time.... More

This was my second visit to Intercourse Canning Company. They have a nice array of jams, jellies, pickles, relishes, etc... I always buy the pickled beets. There are other companies nearby that sell good beets but these are my favorite. They have the perfect amount of tanginess and sweetness. I stumbled upon it last year on a visit to Stoltzfus...

Tons of great samples!!! Plus their jams do not contain corn syrup (which all the other stores' jams do). Yay!
