Respect for our guests and for the food we source, select, prepare, cook, and serve.



in their day the Shilling Canning Company was known by Baltimoreans city-wide for their high quality products and honest name.

The company, started by Chef Shillings’ family in 1935, benefited well from the knowledge passed down by generations of farming and butchering, and quickly expanded their operation to include produce sourced from neighboring farms. Above all else, Shilling Canning Company was a family business. Their operation was built on respect for the consumer, the product, and their partners; on sharing the best of what they had with their community, and on doing things right the first time, every time. It’s with these same values Shilling Canning Company’s modern incarnation serves guests today.
