Rosebud Preserves

Get to know more about Rosebud Preserves…

Rosebud Preserves is based in three converted barns, the oldest of which was built in 1830, at Rosebud Farm in the middle of the small village of Healey near Masham in North Yorkshire.

Situated just south of Wensleydale on the north side of a wide valley with open views across beautiful countryside, it is here that the Rosebud team prepares a range of over fifty sweet and savoury preserves. These are made principally by hand and in small batches using the best available ingredients bought and gathered locally wherever possible. They include wild fruit and flowers picked from the surrounding hedgerows each spring and autumn – crabapples and rowanberries to make fruit jellies, aromatic elderflowers to perfume gooseberry jam.

There are damsons from a long established orchard in the Lyth Valley, Cumbria, fresh locally grown herbs, green tomatoes from Lancashire, beetroot and rhubarb from Yorkshire and much of the rest, unless it is termed ‘exotic’, from surrounding counties.

Our naturally-set fresh herb jellies including Mint, Rosemary, Sage and Thyme – long-time favourites in our domestic market – have achieved outstanding success in the top gourmet and natural food stores across the Atlantic in America.
