About Us

In 1987, Shirley and I purchased a 1913 Creamery, a pretty well worn down building on the bank of the River Clyde, in the lovely village of New Glasgow in Prince Edward Island.

Our goal was to renovate and create a food destination that welcomed and treated guests to food with integrity and flavour.

It all started with our low sugar preserves, specialty foods, blending full leaf tea, and has since grown spice blends as well.

We have developed the location with hard work, positive word of mouth from our customers and customer caring staff.

Our retail shop and online store sell only items we enjoy.

They must be functional, beautiful and offer value.

We have met most producers of the products we sell, including Dunoon Pottery in Staffordshire, England.  

We look for friendly people who produce excellent products at reasonable prices.

Our seasonal restaurant is one of the busiest on the Island; here we serve tasty local comfort food at affordable prices. 

As part of our life’s larger purpose, Shirley and I started The Gardens of Hope, a 12-acre garden sanctuary next door with a mission of opening a Respite Cottage for those dealing with life-threatening illnesses.

They are our guests at no cost to them or their families. More info here.

We now ship our products to the world through our mail order department. We personalize all our gift orders with handwritten salutation cards, at no charge. We are happy to say we have thousands of regular customers mainly in the US and Canada. 

Read are a few of the testimonials that have come our way this year. 

I've never been to Prince Edward Island, but family gave me a jar of preserves from their visit. It's the best I've ever tasted. So when we moved from the country to the city, I decided to order a whole box of preserves instead of making homemade strawberry jelly. Looking forward to trying so many flavors this year.

Absolutely loved your store, restaurant, and beautiful gardens! I love your food products because they are not full of preservatives. Your Wild Blueberry & Raspberry with champagne fruit spread is insanely delicious! It was very nice meeting you Bruce and to see you working with your staff and talking to your customers is not often seen in a lot of businesses. You make the visit feel like home. You and Shirley give of yourselves to the Gardens of Hope, a most wonderful gift to others in need. God Bless you both! This is a must stop for anyone visiting PEI. Love your Island, the people are amazing and the beauty of the Island breathtaking! Rosemary F., High River, Alberta, Canada

Felt welcomed like an old friend. Loved the preserves. Loved the amazing staff and great service even more. Ruth T. Colorado Springs, CO, US

Your products are superior to most products offered, I was introduced to Prince Edward Island Preserve Company on a cruise many years ago and have been addicted since and have introduced PEIPC to many friends with the wonderful gift selections and now they too are addicted. Who needs drugs when you can purchase such delicious products and get high just on the pleasure of enjoying them. So delicious and natural ingredients. ~ S. Stanley, Auburn, California

Christmas gifts for my family, boyfriend, and boyfriend's family. I grew up on the Island, and I want them all to see what beautiful things come from here. Especially the Cow's chocolate covered chips!!! I grew up on those, and I almost cried when i saw I could buy them here :) Definitely will be ordering more again! ~ B. Buttee, Edmonton, Alberta

We wish you and yours all the best, and we hope we may serve you in the future. 


Bruce, Shirley and all staff at The Prince Edward Island Preserve Co.
