Spring Marmalade Day

Spring Marmalade Day

Whilst Seville Orange Marmalade can only be made in January, due to the short season that they are available, there are many other fruits in the citrus family that make marvellous marmalade throughout the year…

Sara Ward will welcome you to Hen Corner with fresh coffee and home-made treats. After an introduction to our time together you will have opportunity to stroll around the garden visiting the chickens and bees, then off to the conservatory and kitchen to prep & preserve…


  • Three Fruit (Grapefruit, Orange & Lime) Marmalade
  • Lemon, Honey & Ginger Marmalade
  • Handmade Organic Bread

We are pleased to bring you this London marmalade making course.

Our time together will include:

  • An introduction to Hen Corner
  • A history of preserving and marmalade
  • Preparing fruit and creating two varieties of marmalade
  • Making a loaf of bread
  • Homemade lunch together
  • Potting up the finished marmalade
  • Baking our loaves

Each guest goes home with a goodie bag, your bread and marmalade, all recipe sheets, and the confidence to make more at home.

We are delighted to announce that both our Seville Orange Marmalade and our Lemon Honey & Ginger Marmalade won Bronze medals in the World Marmalade Awards 2020

‘A great day spent with friends learning the art of bread and marmalade making from the expert. I enjoyed the doing and coming away with something but equally the relaxed atmosphere created by Sara… As a bonus we created while the chickens free-ranged outside while also picking up random tips and information about ‘country’ life and sustainable living.’
