You get out what you put in
We’ve been baking, by hand, in Devon for 40 years using some of the best ingredients. We bake from scratch, cracking over 16,000 free-range eggs a week! We make our own flapjack fillings from English Bramley Apples and we even make our own thick delicious, caramel to get it just right!
Our super fruity jams for our Victoria Sponge and Frangipane are made to our specification by Highfield Preserves up the road in Tiverton. With a beginning like ours, with jam made on the Aga at home on Highfields Vineyard, they now have a purpose-built premises but still make their delicious preserves by hand in small batches to ensure excellent flavour and quality.
Free Range Eggs
Deliciously fresh and always free-range from our friends half a dozen miles away at Black Dog Farm. They’ve RSPCA accreditation and ‘Lion Quality Standard’ certification. It’s a family run farm than have been in the free-range egg game for over 20 year, nestled in the beautiful Devon countryside – the hens certainly have a fantastic view!
We take condensed milk, and slowly cook it out until the colour and consistency are just right. We like to cook it for slightly longer so it’s thick and has some slightly roasted notes to offset some of the sweetness.
