our story…

My family and I have been producing high quality curds, jams, chutneys and sauces for over 30 years.

It all started back in 1981 when we found ourselves with a surplus of eggs from our farm. Not wishing them to go to waste, my husband Tom encouraged me to use the eggs to make a batch of my Lemon Curd (his favourite!), and to see if I could sell it to local shops in nearby towns.

old family recipe books…

As luck would have it my husband wasn’t the only fan and requests started to pour in from customers, asking whether I might consider selling my other home made jams, marmalades and chutneys too. So I took out my mum’s recipe books and decided to give it a go.

Soon the farmhouse was just too small and in 1985 Tom converted farm buildings into a new kitchen. Ladies from the local village were drafted in to help me with the making of my preserves and my eldest daughter Sarah also joined the team. Since then we’ve just kept growing, relocating to even bigger premises in 1992.

made with Love…

Today, Darlington & Daughters remains a family concern, with my youngest daughter Wendy coming on board too. Following in my footsteps, Sarah has had her own range of tasty mustards, table sauces and pickles and now Wendy has developed a delicious range of cooking sauces.

We all still have one aim; to craft delicious products with a truly home made taste.

the proof of our success?
the taste…

Our customers have been telling us for years how great our products taste; and it seems that the ‘powers that be’ are catching on. Since first entering in 2005 we have won many awards across our range of over 70 products.
