WILKIN & SONS GOOSEBERRY PRESERVES 12oz
Tiptree continues it's pattern of excellence with this Gooseberry Preserve, a tangy and fruity combination with a good balance of sweet and sour that preserves the complexity of the fruit.
The Wilkin family has been farming at Tiptree, Essex, since 1757, and today the business is run by Peter Wilkin, great grandson of our founder. Our fruit crops include strawberry, raspberry, loganberry, mulberry, blackberry, morello cherry, rhubarb, damson, Victoria plum, greengage, quince and the curious medlar. We believe that we are unique in the world in growing this difficult crop, but it is worth it for its depth of taste. Our fruits are all still hand-picked and the farm is LEAF Marque accredited (Linking Environment And Farming), ensuring that we farm sympathetically with our environment and encourage links with our local community.
