Our Story

Nicole Patterson, Owner of NeatNick Preserves

My grandfather kept a larger-than-necessary garden every year. Every summer would challenge us to preserve as much of the produce from the garden as possible.

I grew up preserving with my grandmother. We started with strawberry jam when I was so little that my mom would get mad at my grandmother for having me on a chair that close to the stove.

Ever since, I’ve had an interest in food culture: in fact, I completed my master’s thesis on ancient olive oil presses. I returned to preserving five years ago, finding it to be both something I enjoy and a great way to stretch the season of a particular fruit or vegetable. Family and friends raved over jars I gave as gifts or opened to share during gatherings.
