Wilkin & Sons

The Tiptree story begins around the early 1700s with Trewlands, the farm that was later to become the main site for jam-making in the Essex village of Tiptree. Wilkin & Sons have gone from strength to strength producing their excellent jams and supplying many countries around the world. A renewed focus on home-grown fruits has helped the farm to flourish and today, it grows more fruit than ever.

We have their range of jams and sauces available on our shelves in the Deli shop.

Tiptree

The first ‘Tiptree’ conserves were made in 1885 on the Tiptree estate and are still made here to this day. Fruit crops include strawberries, mulberries and damsons to name but a few. Our signature fruit is the Little Scarlet strawberry, a tiny wild variety, originally brought to the UK by the Wilkin family in the early 1900's. We believe that we are unique in the world in growing this difficult crop, but it is worth it for the quality of conserve it provides.

We received our first Royal Warrant from George V in 1911 and remain Royal Warrant holders as purveyors of 'Tiptree' products to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

‘Tiptree’ products can now be found in over seventy countries, on luxury cruise liners, in five star hotels and on top airlines.

Borderfield Oils

Production of a high quality, simple, tasty product was their collective aim and with this, Borderfields was born..
