Welcome to my website, Kingston Preserves.
I love cooking & Kingston Preserves has grown out of a hobby that got a little out of control! I began by selling my jams & chutney outside my house & with encouragement from family & friends, & a small mention in Devon Life I plucked up the courage to start my business. My first foray into selling was February 2016 at Ivybridge Market & since then I haven’t looked back. I now sell regularly at local markets, food events & festivals & our local shop.
I am a local producer and everything is made in small batches in my kitchen. We are lucky enough to have a space for a polytunnel & greenhouse so wherever possible I use our home grown produce or I buy my ingredients as locally as I can. I also try to work with the seasons so if I run out of something you might have to wait a few months for a new batch to be made. To me this is important as in Devon we have some of the best seasonal produce available, & you can’t beat the flavour of a freshly picked tomato still warm from the greenhouse.
I’d love to talk to you about your thoughts on my products. Don’t hesitate to contact me using email, or contact me on Facebook.
