Our Story

Born in Alabama and raised in the Carolinas, Raven's Nest | Gourmet + Gift is a second generation, woman-owned and operated family business rich in heritage and a loyal following.  Raven's Nest was founded in 1980 by our matriarch, Raven, and for the past twelve years her legacy has been carried on by her oldest daughter, Monica. For 40 years we've been creating and sharing unique, handmade gifts and artisan jams + spices. Every item in our collection is rooted in Raven’s artistry, love of good food, creativity, and ability to innovate and adapt in both times of plenty and times of want.

Our "sweet with a little heat" jams are a modern twist on a time-honored, southern favorite.  Thoughtfully sourced fruits are blended with a medley of peppers to create a perfect marriage of sweet and spicy. Known for their versatile uses, from cocktails, to cheese pairings, to marinades and glazes for grilling, our jams are simply too good for just biscuits!
