Try to forgive "mother nature". Due to her eagerness to get things going so early this year, she sprung Spring on us much too early in Door County. The consequential devastation of the County's cherry crop has nearly doubled what we have to pay for our cherries. Therefore, we now find it necessary, for the first time in Bea's 51 year history, to charge more for our products that contain Door County cherries. We hope that this is not too much of an inconvenience and does not discourage you from enjoying tasty cherry treats!
Beas Ho-Made jams, jellies, pickles, relishes, specialty products, and bakery (many of which are award winning) are made in the same manner as they were when the business started; small batch, hand-packed, and without artificial colors. Bea's Ho-Made Products has grown to include over 100 varieties of jams, jellies, pickles, relishes, and specialty products, plus homemade, award winning pies and fresh cookies, which are available only in-store.
Jams and preserves are interchangable terms. Jams or preserves are each made from the entire fruit, while jelly is made from the extracted juice. Our jams and jellies are all made in small batches entirely by hand. The average batch only yields 12 to 15, 10 ounce jars. We make over 70 varieties of jams and jellies, ranging from the common Strawberry Jam to the more unique Dandelion Jelly. Bea's Chopped Cherry, Cherry-Plum, and Door Delite jams have all won the "Wisconsin State Seal of Excellence" award.
Some of our delicious jams are combinations of fruits. To make your shopping easiser, we've described them below.

Our pie crust is made with lard, flour, salt, and water. Each crust is hand-rolled and each pie is crafted by hand. All of our pies are filled with fruit, sugar, and flour. The flour works to thicken the fruit juices released during baking. We have over 14 varieties of pies, including; cherry, 4-berry, strawberry rhubarb, and dutch apple. Pies are available in our bakery case throughout the summer, and are available frozen and unbaked all year. Pumpkin pies are available during the fall and winter holidays.
Need a pie after October? Call and give us 2 hours and we can have one baked fresh and ready for your table. Or better still, call the day before.
! It's always best to call ahead to assure availability. !
! Unfortunately, we are unable to ship our pies. !
Throughout the better part of the year, we also have fresh-baked cookies in our case. We make most of our cookie dough from scratch. Varieties include; cherry chocolate chip, cherry oatmeal, peanut butter, molasses, choclolate chip, triple chocolate chunck, snickerdoodle, and white chocolate macadamia.
