Maine’s Own Treats began in 1975 when the original owner, K. Weymouth Howard, Jr. a WWII veteran and retired submarine cook, made his family’s old recipes for jams out of his sea captain’s home in Blue Hill, Maine.

After winning multiple blue ribbons at the fairs and demand becoming so great for his jams, he moved the business to our current 30 acres location on Bar Harbor Road. In 1987, the Gauvin family took over Maine’s Own Treats with Weymouth staying on to continue cooking the jams into his late sixties before retiring.

Over the decades we expanded the flavors but the original recipes remain. Our jams are still made the old fashioned way, over a stove and hand poured. If you visit our factory outlet, sweet tantalizing aromas will greet you when the current owner, Andy, is cooking up a fresh batch of our world famous jams.
