An award-winning artisan producer of
jam, chutney and marmalade in
Burnopfield, North East England.

Only the finest ingredients are used in Woodcrest Kitchen’s delicious sweet and savoury preserves. Most of the fruit and vegetables used are homegrown on the family allotment in Burnopfield, the surplus from other local gardens or foraged for locally from the hedgerows of nearby lanes and villages. The exception is the Woodcrest Kitchen marmalade; there are few citrus trees in the North East of England! On occasions when fruit and vegetables need to be purchased, Woodcrest Kitchen is proud to support local independent greengrocers and fruiterers on the high street.

The Woodcrest Kitchen method is simple and traditional, using open stove pans with everything carefully prepared by hand. Typically, only 6 to 12 jars are produced at a time so when you purchase from Woodcrest Kitchen you can be assured you are buying something extra special – something homemade and free from artificial preservatives or additives.

Because produce is mostly homegrown, Woodcrest Kitchen jams and chutneys are seasonally dependent and limited in number; when they are gone, they are gone! Please be aware that availability may also be constrained by external factors such as the weather. In some years there are bumper crops, but if there is a crop failure on the allotment some recipes may not be available for a season, or be very limited in number.

Woodcrest Kitchen recipes include experimental flavour combinations, not widely available from the mass-produced brands, so you’ll truly have something unique and even a little bit unusual (in the most delicious way!) for the discerning palate.

All products are gluten free and suitable for vegetarians and vegans. The Woodcrest Kitchen has been certified with a Level 5 hygiene rating.
