Prime Cuts


Wilkin & Sons preservers and fruit growers since 1885 have an extensive farm next to the Tiptree jam factory in the Essex countryside.  Soft fruit, stone fruit and speciality fruit such as quince and medlars are grown for the fresh fruit market and for jam making; it’s a great treat to walk through the orchard of dark juicy cherries and to be able to eat one straight from the tree.  

The traditional methods of making fine preserves have been passed down through the generations ensuring that quality ingredients are always used to make the preserves of good taste.  We are very proud to work with Tiptree Farm in Essex to provide the very best seasonal produce at its peak to create our delicious desserts.


Here at Gillray’s we cater for special occasions including weddings in our beautiful event and dining spaces.
