Traditional, home-made preserves made just the way Grandma used to.

Ok, perhaps the chilli jams are a bit feisty for Grandma’s taste, but you get the idea.

Here at Black Chicken Preserves, we grow and hand-pick citrus, chillis, rosellas, mulberries, passionfruit, tomatoes and other vegetables from our own pesticide-free trees, bushes and vines, then process them into a range of delicious marmalades, jams, jellies, chutneys and pickles.

We also believe that good, nutritious food should not end up in landfill simply because it does not meet the unrealistic size and shape requirements of the major grocers. Instead, we hunt down these ‘rejects’, giving the farmer some income for what would otherwise be wasted, and put these fruit and vegies to use because, really, who cares if a capsicum is slightly misshapen, or a strawberry is “too small”?? It is the flavour that counts! And, let’s face it, the “too small” strawberries are the tasty ones and make the most flavoursome jams!

Because we care about providing wholesome, nutritious food, our products also do not contain any artificial colours, flavours or preservatives. For those with sensitivities, all of our products are also dairy- and nut-free.
