Our Story

Highfield Preserves – Proudly Handcrafted Preserves

At Highfield Preserves, we believe that food can be a powerful way to make memories, whether it’s sharing a meal with friends or family, or savouring a special holiday moment. Our brand is all about recreating those memories with our artisanal products, made with care and passion in small batches.

Our story began in 1984 on the family AGA in Devon, where Jennifer Fraser crafted a popular range of mustards using Highfield’s red and white wine, produced at Highfield Vineyard. Buoyed by the success of her mustards, Jennifer launched a range of premium preserves using her much-loved family recipes. Today all our preserves are still handcrafted in small batches, using traditional open pans, to ensure maximum flavour and taste.

We are proud of our heritage and the journey we have taken to get where we are today. From our humble kitchen table beginnings, we have grown into a thriving business, handcrafting over 50 different flavours of jams, marmalades, and chutneys. Our commitment to taste, home-cooked quality, and fresh ideas remains as strong as ever.

We are passionate about creating high-quality products that are both delicious and ethical. Our ingredients are carefully sourced, and we only use the finest and freshest produce available. We are committed to honesty and transparency in everything we do, and we take our responsibility to our customers and to the environment seriously.

We are excited to be handcrafting for some of the most famous department stores in the world, but we never forget our roots. At Highfield Preserves, we believe that food is about more than just sustenance – it’s about sharing moments, making memories, and celebrating life’s special moments. 

Thank you joining us on this journey, and we look forward to sharing our delicious products with you.
