Claire Kelly was a chartered accountant before she decided to turn her passion for preserves into a business. She had grown up around people who preserved the harvest for later and so in turn she did the same.
Grateful friends who received hampers at Christmas encouraged this passion and she decided to try selling – then everything grew from there
Her products have been described as “deliciously different”. Inspired by something she’s eaten or by an ingredient a recipe develops and another product reaches the shelves. She loves to grow chillies and experiment – not just with their heat but their flavours!
