Peachey’s Preserves, local artisan producer, reaches to out to wider market

For immediate release: 21st October 2009

Peachey’s Preserves is an artisan producer of jellies, chutneys, relishes and savoury jams and marmalades. Janet Peachey’s handmade preserves have until now only been available through selected markets and shops in Norfolk and Suffolk. Now Peachey’s Preserves has launched a website and online shop – offering the year-round range for delivery across the UK.

Janet Peachey said, “I make all my preserves by hand in Pulham Market, Norfolk, following family recipes, creating new recipes and using the finest own-grown, wild and local produce. My latest seasonal speciality is a tart crab apple and chilli jelly, made with a bumper harvest of garden crab apples and Apache chillies from my mother’s greenhouse; it is fantastic with roast beef.”

Like many local producers, Peachey’s Preserves works with a network of local growers, brewers and others, to produce superb and locally distinctive foods. The apple, cider and sage jelly is made with garden sage and Aspall’s cyder from Debenham in Suffolk; apricot and Norfolk Ale chutney uses Norfolk Nectar Ale from the Humpty Dumpty Brewery at Reedham; date and Chestnut Ale chutney draws rich flavours from the ale of Alburgh’s Grain Brewery.

The Peachey’s Preserves website also lists local outlets and special events, such as Gressenhall’s Apple Day celebration on 25th October, along with details of seasonal products and recipe suggestions. Even the recipes have a local emphasis, such as the irresistible baked gammon with apricot and Norfolk Ale chutney, recommending gammon from Cannells butchers in Diss.

The Peachey’s Preserves website has been created by the Provenance partnership – which provides professional yet affordable services to independent food businesses. Nick Saltmarsh, a founding partner of Provenance, explained, “our personal experience of farming and local supply chains allows us to offer food businesses services appropriate to their needs, from websites and marketing materials to supply chain management, sustainability audits and support in developing sales to public and private sector markets.”
