Westham Island Farms makes its own high quality natural wine jellies and syrups from a traditional recipe that has earned the highest compliments from family and friends over the years. We pick the fruit early in the harvest season when the berries reach their peak sweetness. Try one of our rich wine jellies spread on toast or an English muffin and savour the decadent taste of our homegrown fruit.
Our delicious syrups add a whole new taste sensation to waffles, pancakes, or French toast and taste luscious poured over ice-cream or drizzled on cheesecake. Our wine jellies come in 190 ml glass jars and are eight distinct flavours that are easy to spread and easy to enjoy.
We also carry a large selection of Greaves Pure Jams & Jellies from Niagara on the Lake Ontario, along with a wide selection of Honeyview and Honeybee Centre Honey, Spiceworks, Edible Garden, Balsamic Reductions Monkey Butter, Monkey Toast, Simply Delish soups and salads, House of Q BBQ sauce, Organic Fair and Jules & Kent., frozen fruit.
Try our own fruit syrups, made from fresh berries grown on our farm. The scrumptious choices provide a whole new way to create gourmet meals and desserts. Choose from six delightful varieties, each prized for its exceptional flavour. Syrups are sold in 300 ml glass bottles.
