Delicious home made jams from The Fruit Bowl, Newchurch

Made by Barbara and Alistair Jupe, The Fruit Bowl jams are simply delicious. Raspberry & Loganberry, Gooseberry & Elderflower and Tayberry & Redcurrant are just a few of their flavours (and my favourites I might add).

Absolutely nothing nasty in them – no preservatives used in making the jams and no insecticides used to grow their fruit, just lovingly home made fruity goodness. Continue reading →

Teapigs at The Caledon

We have their top ten flavours available, Every day brew, Mao feng green tea, chamomile, lemon and ginger, liquorice and mint, peppermint, superfruit, chai, rooibos and earl grey strong.
