Wilkin & Sons Tiptree
The quintessentially English preserves that have become a staple in many homes
The team at Tiptree grow a wide range of traditional English fruits and use them to make conserves and condiments in their nut-free factory by the farm. The farm is LEAF Marque accredited (Linking Environment And Farming), recognising that they work sympathetically with the environment and encourage links with their local community.
Tiptree fruit crops include strawberries, raspberries, mulberries, Morello cherries, rhubarb, damson, Victoria plum, greengage, quince, and the curious medlar.
Their products are made to cherished recipes and are free from artificial colours and flavours. The team inspect and prepare the fruit by hand, then cook in small batches using traditional, copper-bottomed pans.
With a growing estate of quintessentially English Tea Rooms, visitors to Tiptree can experience a little heritage in the Museum of Jam Making. More recently, Tiptree have worked with like-minded businesses to develop products in partnership, such as Fruit Gin Liqueurs and Natural Wax Candles.
