About company

The Wilkin family have been farming at Tiptree, Essex, since 1757, and making quality preserves since 1885.

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. Every member of staff is part of our Employee Benefit Trust, giving each a keen interest in the future of the business.

Our farm is LEAF Marque accredited (Linking Environment And Farming), recognising that we work sympathetically with our environment and encourage links with our local community. Fruit crops include strawberries, raspberries, mulberries, Morello cherries, rhubarb, damson, Victoria plum, greengage, quince, and the curious medlar. Where we cannot grow our own crops, we buy the best quality fruit from trusted sources, such as Seville for our marmalade oranges. Our signature fruit is the Little Scarlet strawberry, a tiny wild variety, that is very difficult to grow and to harvest. We believe that we are unique in the world in growing this remarkable crop, but it is worth it for the depth of flavour that it provides.

Our products are made to cherished recipes and are free from artificial colours and flavours. We inspect and prepare our fruit by hand then cook in small batches using traditional, copper-bottomed pans. As well as our jam factory, we also have an artisan bakery and a steamed pudding factory.

We supply an extensive range of conserves, marmalades, honeys, sauces, condiments, fresh fruit, teas, cakes, biscuits, gift packs and even Christmas puddings. More recently, we have expanded our portfolio to offer a comprehensive range of Gin, Vodka and Rum Liqueurs, and full strength Spirits, all made using Tiptree fruits and spreads. In each case, we have worked closely with local, like-minded businesses to craft top quality items for new markets.

Tiptree products can be found in over sixty countries across the world, and are available in fine retailers, premium hotels and quality airlines.
