Kate Fitch
Walton Lea Project, Higher Walton, Warrington, Cheshire

Karen has been associated with the Walton Lea Project for several years. Approximately three years ago she began supplying us with preserves for our Shop within the walled garden and our mobile shop. Two years ago we began a Farmers’ Market and Karen has been a stallholder with us from the outset.

The range of products from Old Orchard Preserves is very popular with our customers; Lemon Curd and Strawberry Jam always fly off the shelves! Karen takes the care to source as much of her produce as possible locally and indeed uses blackcurrants and whitecurrants from our walled garden.

On a personal level Karen is very supportive of the Walton Lea Project (which is a horticultural employment project supporting adults with learning difficulties) and purchases items of woodwork such as birdboxes and the like.

Old Orchard's Lemon Curd tastes like the Food of the Gods.
Fabulous on crusty bread, toast, crackers or my favourite - on a teaspoon straight from the jar!

Alan Gent

For my 60th birthday I received a surprise present of a dozen jars of "personalised chutney".

I had grown the Rhubarb on my allotment and Karen turned it into a fantastic chutney as a gift. I'm also glad to be able to help Old Orchard Preserves by growing specific vegetables for their chutneys. Having known Karen for over 30 years, I know it’s in good hands!!

Kay Alexander
Norton Cross, Cheshire

I have known Karen for over 18 years now, and am very lucky to be able to say that I have eaten at her family table and tasted her wonderful produce for all of that time!

I was thrilled when Karen decided to make a go of Old Orchard Preserves because with the passion that she has always had for natural, healthy produce and her ability to create yummy recipes, well I knew she just couldn’t fail! I know what a positive influence Karen’s Granddad had on her – especially where the cooking of preserves is concerned. It’s as if Karen can take that “old fashioned”, honest and timeless way of doing things and add her own charm, experience and natural ability to produce an up-to-date quality product that appeals to all ages, male & female alike.

The ethos behind her business, the “crop to jar in one day” mentality, the desire to keep things natural and local and not to waste food whilst also not harming the planet – this sums up the Karen I have known for all these years. And when we really get down to basics, I will not have any other brand of Chutney, Jam, Marmalade of Lemon Curd in my house – it’s as simple as that!

Tina Heeps

I recently visited the hollies for a coffee and to try and buy some Seville oranges and lemons to make curd. The oranges had all gone so I decided not to make lemon curd either as I'm busy at work and very tired!

I looked at the curd on the shelf then noticed yours in the fridge. It was very expensive but I knew that the ingredients were perfect and decided to take a chance. May I say (and I am very fussy!) that your lemon curd has brought me joy every morning and was well worth that extra cost. I have bored my husband friends and mum with my enthusiasm about this every day and it is now becoming somewhat of a joke! Well done and should you wish to use me as someone who recommends this product I would be more than happy to oblige.

Good luck.
