Lee Ann Duclo, Oceanside Jams

Lee Ann Duclo has always canned with her family — smoked salmon and native berries.  After many years of entering county and state fairs with her canned goods — she started her own business, Oceanside Jams featuring many preserved products including salal jelly, red huckleberry jam and thimbleberry jam.  Located in Loleta California, Oceanside Jams are sold mainly through craft fairs and contacts made after customers have their first taste and end up ordering cases of her product – it is also sold at the Loleta Meat Market on Main Street in Loleta.  Her Loleta Traffic Jam was inspired by the incredible success of the Loleta Bakery which has created a traffic and parking “situation” in the tiny town of Loleta — who knew?!
