In 1993, demand for Stonewall Kitchen products was growing. National retailer Crate & Barrel approached Jonathan and Jim with an order for 2500 jars of their Orange Cranberry Marmalade. The order was filled but it took a month for the two of them to do it. Realizing they needed to increase production capacity, they purchased and renovated an eighteenth-century era barn in Kittery, Maine. Though adequate, when another larger property became available in nearby York, Maine, the two purchased it and opened a new center of operations.


Our Wild Maine Blueberry Jam is not only our very first Company Classic, but our very first product, that has become the foundation of our brand and is our top selling item year after year. Every month, the jam is produced in our production facility at our Headquarters in York, Maine and averages upwards of 35,000 13-ounce jars per batch.


By 1999, Stonewall Kitchen's momentum required a new and bigger facility. With support from the local community, Jonathan and Jim purchased an eight-acre parcel of town-owned land in York, ME and built a 46,000 square-foot headquarters. The building still serves as a manufacturing facility, distribution and fulfillment operation and the headquarters.


The York headquarters expanded again in the spring of 2013 with the addition of 5,200-square-feet of office space. The new addition is used for the merchandising team to build and display samples and houses operations for Stonewall Kitchen's premier guest services, IT, marketing and other functions.


Starting in 1991, partners Jonathan King and Jim Stott combined their interests in horticulture and cooking to create recipes for oils, jams, chutneys and more. At the urging of a friend, they began their business by selling their homemade products at the local farmers’ market. Working from a small folding table and calling themselves Stonewall Kitchen, after the historic New England stone walls visible outside their kitchen window, the two ended up selling every product they brought with them.


Since their beginnings, Stonewall Kitchen has expanded beyond jams, which they are still primarily known for. Their product line now includes grille sauces, mustards, chutneys, pancake mixes and dessert sauces, as well as kitchen tools and place settings and home decor items.

As production became more structured and streamlined, Jonathan and Jim attended the Fancy Food Show in New York City – the largest specialty food and beverage marketplace that attracts 1,100 exhibitors and 36,000 buyers. The result was unprecedented for first time attendees—the Outstanding Preserve award for their Roasted Garlic Onion Jam. They also earned a second highest honor award, for Outstanding Product Line. By the time the show was over, Jonathan and Jim had 500 orders from retailers across the country.


Another expansion took place in 2008 when a new 32-seat, theater-style, Cooking School was added to the York facility. This state-of-the-art classroom is designed for cooks of all skill levels. Restaurant chefs, cookbook authors and cooking professionals from across the nation come here to share their knowledge and demonstrate their talents. Class attendees observe, can ask questions and are then served a full course meal.
