Overview
More
Greaves began making pure old-fashioned jams, jellies, marmalades and condiments in 1927, using only the finest fruits, vegetables, sugar and spices. Today, we continue to use these time-honoured jam recipes, hand-stirring each batch of jams in open stainless-steel kettles, to produce 35 wonderful jam and jelly preserves. No pectin or preservatives are added. The "Niagara fruit belt" is where you will find some of Canada's richest soils and Greaves production facilities are located in the heart of this fertile land for a variety of its' fruit and vegetable purchases. We also source many other fruits and vegetables in season and fresh frozen packed from across Canada (like blueberries and raspberries) and USA (citrus) to produce superior quality, high fruit content preserves the old fashioned way. In the early years, from 1927 until 1989, Greaves made and sold its jams, jellies, marmalades and condiments out of the same location in the historic district of Niagara-on-the-Lake at 55 Queen Street. Since then, a larger facility was built in town to accommodate our growing needs, but our retail store remained in its original location. In fact today you can still visit our unique shop which has existed since 1927, filled with our pure products, many gift boxes of our jams, and plenty of delicious Canadian gourmet products and preserves.

A visit to Niagara on the lake would be incomplete without a visit to Greaves. They have an amazing selection of jams and marmalades, sauces and chutneys just so much to choose from makes for the only difficult decision. A great shop.

Whenever we're across the border, we make a trip to Greaves to bring home jellies & jams. Best cherry jam I've ever had & a wide variety of selections to choose from. Always a new flavor (rhubarb) to try. Highly recommended.
