Thursday Cottage, based in Tiptree, receives the Great Taste Award

A manufacturer of JAM, marmalade and curd won a prize.

Thursday Cottage received a Great Taste Award 2022 for its blackcurrant jam made in Tiptree.

A range of award winning curds, jams, marmalades and reduced sugar products are made at the company’s small factory at Trewlands Farm.

The business moved from a small Somerset thatched cottage to Tiptree in 2002 and aims to continue the tradition of making jams, curds and marmalades in small batches.

Most jams are still filled by hand today.

Thursday Cottage is one of the Wilkin and Sons Limited brands alongside Tiptree, Cole’s and Jules and Sharpie.
