A small, family owned and operated preserving company started in 1983. Over the 30 years they have built a business that stands on a foundation of high quality product. Good things can sprout from humble beginnings. Founder Marilyn Rootham started Rootham Gourmet Preserves in 1983 as a way to put the bountiful harvest from her family’s garden to good use. She started selling her jams and preserves at farmers’ markets and to cottagers in Muskoka.

Over time, she developed recipes that have become perennial favorites such as Rootham’s Tangy Red  Pepper Jelly. Marilyn’s son Will Rootham-Roberts joined the company in 2010. While Will has developed new products and expanded co-packing and private label services, the company’s commitment to craft food production – local, small batch and all-natural – remains unchanged.
