Tiptree, the home of the Wilkin family. We’ve farmed here for nearly three hundred years. The very first Tiptree conserves were made here in 1885 and to this day we still specialize in fruit growing on the Tiptree estates. The arable cropping that is so important for a good rotation system has been entrusted to local farmers, leaving Wilkin & Sons to concentrate on fruit growing. The orchards, loganberry plantations and strawberry fields are tended with care and close attention to environmental issues. Some crops such as medlars, quinces, mulberries and some of the plums are in conversion to organic growing methods.The fruit used at Tiptree can come from the company’s own farms, from local growers or from trusted overseas sources. Whatever the source, Wilkin & Sons make sure that only the very best fruit is used in every case. Visitors to the factory are amazed to find that every single fruit is hand sorted before it reaches the boiling pans. At Tiptree we specialise in growing fruit so it comes as no surprise perhaps that such unusual fruits such as medlar, loganberry, mulberry, quince and greengage can all still be found growing on the company farms.
