"Passionate about preserving and preventing waste, we take surplus, locally grown and foraged produce and create a unique range of preserves."

We are a community business, tackling  food waste and valuing local food systems through preserving.


We work with Bradford Council’s Markets Service to capture surplus produce from St James Wholesale Market alongside local growers.  Quite often this produce cannot be sold because it is very ripe or mis-shapen, but it is brilliant for preserving as jams, chutneys and other products. We combine this surplus produce with a dash of local ingenuity and culture and create a truly unique preserve range.  We are also fond of wild food and are avid foragers.  Recipes are designed around seasonality, local cultures and flavour and are a community collaboration.
