Gregory started making preserves with neighbors when he was eight years old. Spiced Peach was his first endeavor, using neighbors Annette and Herman’s recipe. He gave these first jars to friends and family for Christmas and holidays. His passion for artisan home made products and home style presentation took him from this simple beginning to the opening of his own catering business in Philadelphia, PA in 1984.
Preserves led to chutneys and pickled products and also to baked confections, and then to off-premise catering which led to his wholesale bakery, Made in Buck’s County. Philadelphia Magazine named Gregory’s Chocolate Chip Cookie the Best of Philly.
He was again named by Philadelphia Magazine, the Best of Philly in August 2013, for his preserves. In November 2013, he was named Best Artisanal Spread by Cooking Light magazine. In 2015 his Country Christmas Marmalade received the prestigious Artisan Marmalade Gold Award at the Dalemain Mansion & Gardens, Cumbria, England. Once again in 2016 he received the Artisan Marmalade Silver Award for his MacGregory Benjamins Orange Marmalade, a Bronze Award for Scented Lemon Rhubarb Marmalade, and a special commendation for his Sealed with a Kiss Chocolate Orange Raspberry Marmalade.
