Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory forever!
Hieromonk Basil, Hegumen
May his memory be eternal!
Our beloved Hegumen (Superior), Hieromonk Basil, co-founder of Holy Protection Monastery, reposed in the Lord on the feast of St. Andrew the first called Apostle (November 30), at 4:15 in the morning, surrounded by all of his monks and a close friend of the monastery, after a brief illness.
The Jampot sold its first jar of Poorrock Abbey™ preserves, made from wild berries picked near our shop, in 1986. Since that time, we’ve been selling our wild berry preserves and other gourmet jams and jellies to customers from around the world. As the years progressed, we’ve added moist and flavorful fruitcakes, scrumptious muffins and cookies, handmade chocolates and candies, tasty pancake and fruit-and-nut mixes, and speciality grade coffees to our offerings. All of our products are made with the finest local, regional, natural and organic ingredients we can find.
Our storefront is open seasonally. See below for dates and hours. The Jampot is located near Jacob’s Falls, three mile east of Eagle River and five miles west of Eagle Harbor on Scenic Highway M26 in Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula.
Proceeds from the Jampot, support the vision and works of Holy Protection Monastery, a Byzantine Catholic Monastery. Learn more by visiting our website societystjohn.com
