On Etsy since 2017

Spreading happiness, one jar at a time.

The founder of Neat Nick Preserves grew up preserving with her grandmother. It all started with strawberry jam when she was so little that her mother would get mad at her grandmother for having her on a chair next to the stove. Ever since, she has had an interest in food culture: in fact, she completed her master’s thesis on ancient olive oil presses. She returned to preserving five years ago, finding it to be something she enjoyed. Family and friends raved over jars given as gifts and opened to share during gatherings. After having her daughter, she realized that her more-than-full-time career managing museum collections was going to cause her to miss time she would prefer to spend with family. She started making small batches of preserves to sell. With a background of craft-minded family business she founded Neat Nick Preserves, giving her a creative outlet that brings together her professional skills, academic interests and genuine love of food. Neat Nick Preserves allows for exploration, experimentation and continued learning while celebrating the joy people find in jams, jellies and preserves.
