Stephanie Shanks began Chickadee Larder as a hobby business in 2012. Upon being laid off in the fall of that year she decided to pursue a full-time career creating and selling her gourmet, allergen-sensitive condiments.
With a heart for local and independent business, Stephanie strives to operate a business using local goods and services as often as possible, and is committed to small batch production to ensure quality and safety from cross-contamination of allergens (including but not limited to gluten/wheat, dairy, soy, corn, and nuts).
Stephanie lives in Fredericton, NB with her husband Evan and their Havanese “Hammer.”
Our goal is to produce allergen sensitive products with minimal processing and unique flavour.
We offer gluten, dairy, soy, corn and sugar free options.
We aim to work with with local and/or independent businesses as often as possible including, but not limited to:
Let us know if you have dietary restrictions that we don't currently address and we'll do our best to accommodate if possible!
