Peggy Rose grew up in rural (Johnston County) North Carolina, the daughter of a long line of farmers. She left home to attend college and become a teacher, blessing the lives of first graders for many years through her remarkable career in the classroom.
Peg’s roots and heart have always remained on her family farm. After perfecting her family’s heritage recipes, she began to make her favorite jellies and condiments to give as gifts to the parents of her students, friends all around the world and of course, her family. Once they tasted the deliciousness of Peg’s recipes, it was with their urging and support that she decided to share her special jellies with the public.
Never afraid of hard work, Peg has worked tirelessly to make Peggy Rose’s Jellies and condiments available to anyone who craves it. Initially available through local gourmet stores and high-end restaurants, Peggy Rose’s is now sold in markets throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic markets, Southern Season and fine gourmet retailers around the world. The Peggy Rose’s team has met with dozens of other representatives at trade shows and missions to expand the Peggy Rose’s market. Peggy Rose’s is fast becoming a household name, and a must-have at every gathering of families and friends. We look forward to sharing the deliciousness we love so dearly with you! Her mission is to “create flavorful artisanal foods sourced in North Carolina. A variety of pepper jellies and champagne mustard are our specialties. We strive to use fresh ingredients and support local farmers!”
