Easy to recycle or reuse

Our gift boxes are fully recyclable. The box, tag and labels are made of paper and card. Our ribbons are fabric, which can be composted or reused – and you can hang the wooden charm on your Christmas tree.

You’re welcome to return jars to us at any Growing Newsome event in 2022, or glass can be taken to bottle banks or recycling centres.

Nutritional and allergy information

All our preserves are Vegetarian. Our homegrown jam and jelly is made with just fruit or vegetables, sugar and sometimes lemon or lime. Everything except our marmalade is Vegan. Pickles contain mustard seeds.

Homegrown jams

Apart from the citrus fruits, all our fresh ingredients are homegrown, so we have limited supplies. We’ll update this page with our current stock availability. Label designs may vary.
