Maine’s Own Treats began in 1975 when the original owner, K. Weymouth Howard, Jr., a 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 the 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. We have expanded the flavors, but the originals still remain. The jams are still made the old fashioned way, over a stove and hand poured.
