Hi, I’m Chris and I started Heavenly Hedgerows back in 2008 after launching at The Tobacco Factory Christmas markets. You can still find me there every Christmas. Heavenly Hedgerows makes preserves and liqueurs from sustainably hand-picked hedgerow berries. Alongside this, over the years, I’ve introduced a ‘not foraged – still fabulous’ range, made with British Fruit. I also have two marmalades which are obviously not British citrus, but they are all handcut and – like all my preserves – made in very small batches.
I’m based in Keynsham, right in between Bristol & Bath and surrounded by countryside and friendly farmers who let me wander their land and collect berries. I also spend alot of time looking at the ground and really love wild greens. If you follow me on Instagram you’ll find the occasional nice photo of what I’ve found https://www.instagram.com/heavenly_hedgerows/
I work from home in a little workshop out the back. Everything I make is handmade and made without the use of commercial pectin. Instead sometimes I add an apple base for added pectin. I don’t use any essence in my liqueurs either – just the fruit, the whole fruit, and nothing but the fruit. I also do wedding favours by request.
