About Wilkin's

The Wilkin family have farmed at Tiptree, Essex, since 1757, making quality preserves since 1885. We grow a wide range of traditional English fruits and use them to make conserves, condiments, and other treats in our factory by the farm.

Fruit is inspected and prepared by hand then cooked in small batches using traditional recipes. We supply an extensive range of conserves, marmalades, honeys, sauces, condiments, fresh fruit, teas, cakes, biscuits, gift packs, fruit gin liqueurs, and even Christmas puddings to markets both at home and in more than 60 countries around the world.

Tiptree products can be found in the finest hotels, cruise liners, airlines and stores. We have been proud Royal Warrant holders for the last 107 years.

As the business heads into the 21st Century every full-time member of staff is part of our Employee Benefit Trust, giving each a keen interest in the future of the business.
