Stonewall Kitchen is a leading specialty food producer headquartered in York, Maine.

Founded in 1991 by partners Jonathan King and Jim Stott, the two established themselves selling jams and jellies at local farmers' markets, fairs and festivals with their flavorful line of distinctive and high-quality food items.

Over time, they expanded their product line to include sauces, condiments, dressings and baking mixes. Today, Stonewall Kitchen is known for its innovative product development, beautiful packaging, stunning retail spaces and exceptional customer service.

It now boasts more than 6,000 wholesale accounts nationwide and internationally, thriving catalog and web divisions and ten retail company stores along the East Coast.

Introduced in 2004, the Tillen Farms brand features a line of 12 "best in class" cocktail garnishes, sold to the grocery, specialty, health food, liquor and food service classes of trade.

Tillen Farms pickled vegetables are primarily grown in Washington's famed Yakima Valley and are available in several different varieties of asparagus, dilly beans, carrots, and snap peas.

The brand's pitted and stemmed cherries are locally grown in Oregon's Willamette Valley, and include popular varieties like Bada Bing, Merry Maraschino, and Rainier Reserve.
