Jammin Jams are a great compliment to your holiday meals, like our Cranberry Raspberry Orange jam! 

It goes great on a turkey sandwich for your leftover turkey, makes great oatmeal cookies with a delicious fall twist when you add our jam to the cookie recipe.

Makes a great appetizer by pouring a jar over a bar of cream cheese for goat cheese with some fruit and cheese tray too!!

They are showing "A Street Cat Named Bob" for all of their supporters who couldn't make it to the last screening. A heart-warming true story, A Street Cat Named Bob is adapted from the real-life memoirs of James Bowen, a former heroin addict who was at his lowest when he met Bob, a stray ginger cat who walked through his window one day and refused to leave. Played by Luke Treadaway, Bowen finds a reason to live – and to go cold turkey from his vicious narcotics habit – when this furry friend starts depending on him.
