The Cherry Tree story began in 1997 at co-owner Sarah’s family home, Cherry Tree Cottage. Her family began making delicious home made preserves in the kitchen using recipes handed down from several generations. Their humble, yet much loved ranges of jams, marmalades, pickles and chutneys were shared at local farmers markets and fairs to first establish The Cherry Tree brand.
By 1999, as demand for their products grew, Sarah’s family sought expert advice from multi-award winning producers Gavin and Mark of Forest Products, who were specialists in making own label preserves and chutneys for some of the most prestigious independent retailers in the UK. Together they brought their combined experience of over 70 years in making quality preserves to allow The Cherry Tree brand to blossom into what we all know and love today.
