From their hobby farm near the Sooke Pot Holes on Vancouver Island,  Janice and Danny Willis turn the fruits and vegetables from their garden into more than 130 gluten-free products. Sun-ripened and grown without the use of chemicals, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and haskap berries are transformed into succulent jams, jellies and sauces from Janice’s family recipes.  As Danny harvests successive crops of corn, tomatoes, hot peppers, beets, peas, beans, carrots, lettuce, cucumbers, asparagus, rhubarb, zucchini, Janice creates a potpourri of chutneys, pickles, relish and vinegars. Their flavourful, always gluten-free creations are sought after at farmer’s markets throughout the region – and by fans around the world. Look for their brightly coloured display! Learn more about JD’s Sunshine Jams & Such …

  • “Onion marmalade, veggies antipasto & peach Melba jam are my favs!!”
  • “My Sweet Picante (Red Pepper Jelly) is now a staple in our house this time of year. We ordered several jars the other day and it was delivered to our doorstep that same day! It was as usual, nothing shy of perfection! Amazing customer service too! Love it.”

JDs sunshine jams AJD’s Sunshine Jams & Such – The Back Story

For more than thirty years, Janice followed and supported her husband, Danny while he served as an RCMP officer across Saskatchewan and British Columbia. In 2014, they chose to settle in the community of Sooke and explore what they could make of their ‘retirement’ years.

As it happened, in June of that year,  their son James was working for a chef in downtown Victoria who was searching for ‘locally-made’ jams to serve during High Tea. He wanted something that would outshine the competition. In short order,  Janice stepped up to provide the eight jams and two vinegars she had been making for years from family recipes. Soon enough, she began selling in Artisan’s Lane to passengers from the Coho and Clipper ferries and tourists from around the globe. Three years later, she and Danny have turned their retirement into a full-time, full-scale labour of love!

It was important to Janice that her products be enjoyed by customers following a gluten-free diet. Janice attributes her regained health to her 100% gluten-free diet after years of struggling with a host of auto-immune disorders. Not only does she love sharing celiac-friendly wares at farmer’s markets, she loves to share her journey with others who are seeking to improve their health through fresh, locally-grown whole food

Janice is keen to learn more! If you have an heirloom recipe that you can offer Janice, she will gladly repay with a jar of her very best strawberry jam!

  • *All JD’s Sunshine James & Such products are gluten-free with the exception of Mocha Stout Jelly  & Pothole Jelly
