About Our Owner

About Our Owner

As a child growing up in Western New York, our owner and founder, Matthew, remembers watching his mother can some of her family-famous applesauce and homemade peach jellies. She would carefully check each of those canning jars for cracks; many were the same old ones that had served her well during past canning seasons.

Only Farm-Fresh Ingredients

His mother would purchase farm-fresh apples and peaches, and then she would wash and peel them before dicing them. The kitchen would soon be filled with the sweet aroma of apples and cinnamon cooking atop the vintage stove in their little kitchen. Though her daylong efforts would always tire her out, the pantry was well-stocked with tasty jams.

Continuing the Family Tradition

Matthew has carried on his mother's tradition of making fine-tasting premium jams and jellies, out of only the freshest fruits and all-natural ingredients. He works hard to not only follow the family recipes, but also expand on them and create new ones. These are then shared with the nation through the delicious products Jellybear Jelly Company offers.

“Jellybear Jams & Jellies are the most provocative and delicious jams and jellies I have had the pleasure of tasting. The flavors run the gamut from fruity and delicious to savory and sweet treating taste buds to a variety of sensations. What an incredible product line from a small company with just as much quality and heart as the big boys. All I can say is yum!”

“I have tried several of Jellybear's jams and jellies and have not been disappointed.  They were all excellent. My favorite was the Apple Pie jam warmed and put over vanilla ice cream, tasted like an apple pie.”

“Your jams and jellies are wonderful! They remind me of my grandmother’s homemade jams. I like all the varieties however, I especially like the Banana Rum Raisin and the Fig jams. “

“Wow!  My husband and I both say......."it's the best jams we ever had"... The different flavors are brilliant! (My favorites are the apple pie jam and strawberry-habanero jam.  My husband loves the banana rum raisin). Delicious…. Thank you so very much and many blessings!

“We never had Jalapeño jelly before.  We tried Jellybear’s Jalapeno Jelly with our turkey sausage links for breakfast one Sunday morning and were hooked.  Jagger loves the Jalapeno jelly, but my favorite is the Strawberry Habanero Jam!  Jellybear Jelly sparks up any meal for us!”

“Jellybear Jelly makes the best jams and jellies by far! Healthy, all natural and very tasty! Some of my favorite ways to enjoy are: Peanut Butter and Pomegranate Sandwiches are awesome! A little bit of Strawberry Habanero Jam on Over easy eggs adds an awesome kick to an otherwise boring breakfast! My kids and I love Jellybear Jelly products!

"YUMMY!! in a word, that's how I would describe the many jellies and jams I've eaten from the Jellybear selection. A couple of years ago, I was presented with 3 jars of Jellybear jelly as a gift. My teenage boys devoured them before I had time to sample all three, but I did get to try the Strawberry-Habanero Jam and was immediately hooked, Since then I have tried several other flavors, and they are all delicious. They were so good I treated 50 of my co-workers with a jar at a holiday staff meeting. I'm getting hungry just thinking about them. Think I'll get some crackers and crack open a jar!"

"Jellybear makes some of the tastiest and most innovative jams and jellies around.  I had never heard of an Apple Pie Jam, but it is one of my favorites!  I really appreciate honest flavor made from honest ingredients."
