Having been born and spent my early years in Kenya, I moved to Ireland to marry a wonderful Irish man and together we run the family farm Crossogue. Now 50 years of marriage later with six children and fourteen grand children, I am still here and have enjoyed the journey it has all taken me on!
For the past 26 years Crossogue Preserves has been an integral part of that story. It started with my passion for using produce from my garden and hedgerows on the farm, this combined with the traditional methods taught to me by my mother in law Nancy, led me to creating a range of preserves for the family. From here I started to sell the surplus at the local country market before a continuous demand over the years has brought us to where we are today.
We are now stocked by purveyors of fine foods throughout Ireland as well as exporting to a small number of international select food stores. We have just started to offer a range of gifts on our website, that we can send anywhere in the world.
