1984 - 2014
Celebrating 30 years of preserve
making by the same family!


Still hand-made in small batches, hand-filled, hand-labelled and personally delivered to our customers!

Look out for our new labels to be introduced during 2014, together with a number of new products. Visit us at one of the shows to see the full range.

Brendon Hill Crafts was founded 30 years ago, by Liz & David Jessup, as a cottage industry on the eastern edge of Exmoor, and close to the iron ore mine which we use as a logo on our labels. The business originally produced fudge, truffles and home-made preserves, although gradually the preserves took over full time. When Liz & David Jessup reached retirement age, we took a decision not to let the successful business disappear, and gave up our jobs to continue the family operation.

Over the last eight years, we have enjoyed a great deal of support from new and existing customers, and the business has flourished. We now operate from a purpose-designed kitchen on the edge of Barnstaple, cooking in small pans that produce 20-25 jars at a time. Jars are hand-filled, hand-labelled, and personally delivered to our customers over the whole of the Exmoor, West Somerset and North Devon area, as well as further afield occasionally. We supply a variety of farm shops, village stores, delis and tourist attractions, as well as tea rooms, hotels and B&Bs, who use our products.


The full range of our preserves and stationery can be found at The Exmoor Producers Shop, Friday Street, Minehead.

We attend a variety of shows and events throughout the year - see "Events" to find our next outing.
