Founders Jonathan King and Jim Stott started their business as a homemade products stall at the local farmers market. Working from a small folding table and calling themselves Stonewall Kitchen, the stall was successful, selling all stock.
Stonewall Kitchen expanded their product line to include vinegars, oils, pesto, jams and baked goods. After selling at multiple venues, the operation branched out into selling wholesale.
In 1993, Crate & Barrel approached them for 2,500 jars of their Orange Cranberry Marmalade. The order was filled but it took a month to do it. To increase production capacity, they purchased and renovated an eighteenth-century barn in Kittery, Maine. Then moved again to a larger property in nearby York, Maine.
