Wild Preserves

Wild Preserves

Meet one of our wonderful suppliers of local jams, jellies, conserves, chutneys and relishes…

Sally Glockling started Wild Preserves from her cottage in Hampden Park in Eastbourne. Her aim being to offer full flavoured homemade preserves, using absolutely no artificial preservatives or colourings.

We spoke to Sally to find out more about the her scrumptious products…

Why did you start Wild Preserves?

“I’ve always loved foraging for fruits such as blackberries, wild plums, bullace and damsons, which often grow in hedgerows. I like using old fashion fruits such as mulberries, quince and medlar and trying out new recipes”

What makes Wild Preserves different?

“Wild Preserves caters for a wide variety of tastes, ranging from traditional, sweet, strawberry jam to bitter Seville orange marmalade and fruit jams with added ginger or alcohol. Much of the fruit I use in my preserves is locally sourced around the Eastbourne area, either picked from the wild or sources from local growers such as Sharnfold Fruit Farm”

What is your favourite product from the range?

“I have a few! Mulberry & Blackberry jam makes for a complimentary combination of flavours, as does Kiwi & Ginger jam and the delicious Rhubarb & Ginger with Lime, which offers a sequential taste experience”

Are there any products to try right now?

“Our Sweet Chilli Chutney or Wicked Green Tomato Chutney would go great with any BBQ food!”

Sound yummy? All Wild Preserves products are available in our Farm Shop!
