Now Then! Welcome to Acorn Preserves
“Artisan preserves made in Kilburn under the shadow of the famous White Horse”
Due to current coronavirus lock down farmers markets have been cancelled.
We are not doing mail order as it’s proved quite pricey, even using couriers and we cannot insure glass jars against breakages.
If anyone needs honey they will need to visit Thirsk to do their”essential” shopping and can purchase our honey from :-
H. Lee and sons, Butchers at 7 Castlegate, Thirsk, YO7 1HL
The Greengrocer 93 Market Place, YO7 1EY Thirsk.
If taking “essential” exercise near Kilburn, YO61 4AG I’m sure we can stock you up as you pass by. Contactless payments available.
If you are intending to come to Kilburn please let us know in advance and also what you would like so we can have it ready for you.
Hope to see all you again when the markets return.
Our natural home-made preserves are created from fresh local ingredients; many harvested from our own garden. Using traditional recipes and open maslin pans we produce small batches of artisan jams, chutneys, hedgerow jellies and mustard’s.
2020 is now upon us and we can be found at our usual haunts as listed on the right hand side.
We have a few new products in the pipeline. Details will appear here.
We produce a small amount of natural honey each year from our own bees which are left free to roam around the glorious Yorkshire countryside. This is honey at it’s best, unpasteurized and totally natural.
We usually have supplies of soft set honey, summer blossom honey (runny), borage honey, heather honey and cut comb. Our different summer blossom varieties can be quite complex in flavor, ranging from a slightly nutty to zesty to toffeeish aftertastes, depending on the flowers our bees have been foraging on. We have tasters available so please come along and try some today.
