Enjoy the country charm of our Prairie Preserves!


At Shallow Creek Nurseries we have established a unique orchard in central Alberta Canada that hosts a large variety of hardy fruits for the Canadian prairies.  Some of these fruits you’ll remember from your grandmothers table and others are new to the prairies.  Once our harvests are completed, we process all our preserves in our Capital Health inspected kitchen on the premises.  You will not find preservatives, colors or additives in our products, just old fashioned goodness.


Special event (weddings, corporate parties etc) gift boxes are available by making selections from the following tables.  You may select from the larger jars – 250 ml size or the smaller jars – 125 ml size.


 We will customize your order to meet your needs.  For example, if you hosting a special event that requires a certain color theme we can do that.  If you are decorating the preserve jars with your own touch we can use special jars.  If you have health concerns and require sugar free preserves for diabetic clients, please let us know. If you want to make a substitution we can look at your request and do our best to accommodate.

The standard label that is included on each box will have a space to fill in To: and From:.  If you wish, we can customize the label as well to suit your event (for e.g. “Thank you for sharing our special day, Love Wade and Shannon”) or (“Merry Christmas to you and your staff from Shallow Creek Nurseries Ltd.”)



**250 ml size gift boxes contain 4 jars. Each jar is a different flavor from our “Prairie Collection” and gift wrapped with country ribbon and raffia.  At Christmas time, the boxes will be a country Christmas theme. Each gift box will include a serving knife. The jars have ribbons tied around the top including the label with the ingredients of each preserve. There will a label affixed to the bottom of each box indicating what 4 varieties of preserves are in the box.

Choose 4 of your top picks from the following table by checking off with a 1st pick.  It’s a good idea to pick 2 alternates in case we are no longer able to supply a specific fruit. 


**125 ml size gift boxes contain 4 jars as well, each in a different flavor.  These are decorated the same and include a serving knife as well. A label will be affixed to the bottom of each box indicating what 4 flavors are in the box.  The 125 ml size include all of the flavors of the  Prairie Collection” line and in addition, selections from the Holiday Collection.”
