Wild & Fruitful - Cumbria

Wild & Fruitful is a producer of high quality Jams, Chutneys, Marmalades, Cheeses, Jellies, Oils and Vinegars. Made by hand and using only local ingredients, many of the products have gained a variety of awards. The Wild & Fruitful catalogue offers pure, natural taste sensations which allow you to taste the secrets of the Lake District gardens.

Wild & Fruitful began a decade ago, when Jane Maggs decided to leave her career as a landscape architect and began to produce jams and other preserves. Instead of making jams just for herself, she began to produce them for everyone who values the good, genuine taste of fruits and berries. Over the last ten years she has produced preserves using a wide range of products, from the most traditional recipes to new culinary experiences. To this day, the Wild & Fruitful passion has been to create taste sensations by respecting the authenticity of natural, local flavours.

Wild & Fruitful ideology has always been to use only local ingredients, mainly handpicked from the fields, forests and gardens of the Cumbria region. Jane grows some of these, while the rest come from both private gardens and orchards of the local farmers and growers. The majority of these are also grown without the use of artificial sprays or fertilisers. The preserves are then made in Jane’s cottage kitchen, using traditional methods, which maintain the best flavour.

Wild & Fruitful products are also used by chefs, cafes and hotels who wish to offer their customers a high quality, authentic taste.
