Products: The Keezletown Community Cannery is the only true can-your-own, non-profit cannery remaining in Virginia and it is one of the oldest in the United States. Located in the Shenandoah Valley, in a small town called Keezletown, the Cannery began in 1942 in the basement of the local school. As World War II was raging and food supplies at home were rationed, people began growing "victory gardens" to support the war effort as well as to supplement their own food supply. Canneries were developed as a concept to foster patriotism and community spirit and were historically supported in part by school systems, which used them for educational purposes. The Cannery is as a non-profit organization for local gardeners and hunters to can their own vegetables, fruits and meats.
