Donna and Gary bought Jefferson Pastry Shoppe, also known as JPS, in 2007. They made many improvements, turning JPS into the best bakery in the area! JPS has won several awards under their ownership and management.
On February 25th, 2015, Donna passed away. Gary, although a full-time dairy farmer at the time, was able to keep the bakery going with a lot of help from his employees. Donna was an experienced cake decorator and had won several awards and taught others on basic cake decorating. At the time of her passing, the Smiths had also owned Carriage House Bakery in Walkersville, MD; of which has since closed to simplify and focus on Jefferson Pastry Shoppe.
