About 5 lilies

5 lilies is a small-batch artisan jam preserves company based in Milwaukee, WI, owned and operated by Jennifer Grundy and Gil Petrovic. Jennifer and Gil met while working in the restaurant business in Milwaukee.

At 5 lilies, we are strong believers in supporting local farmers and businesses by focusing on creating seasonal jams using ingredients from local establishments, including: Outpost Natural Foods, The Spice House, Oro di Oliva, and Indian Groceries.

During the Farmer’s Market season, we buy the majority of our fruit at local Farmer’s Markets; a key supplier being Weston Antique Orchards in New Berlin, WI – a family owned and operated orchard that specializes in unique and rare varieties of apples, pears, plums and cherries.

It is our goal to create jams that are multi-dimensional – not just sweet. Our jams are versatile enough to enjoy with breakfast dishes, pair with a variety of cheeses, use in baking cakes and cookies, as a topping for cheesecake or ice cream – or even use as a glaze for roasted or grilled meats. Of course, we also recommend eating it right out of the jar!

Our artisan jams can be found at several Retail Locations throughout the Greater Milwaukee area or you can purchase them here. They are also used by Tall Guy & A Grill Catering, on the cheese plate at The Ruby Tap, and in gift packages offered by From Milwaukee With Love.

We are pleased to be a part of the strong and vibrant culinary community in Milwaukee, and are proud members of Milwaukee Food For Thought, a group of chefs who present quarterly dinners that give 100% of proceeds to local charities.
