Youngsters of all ages who watched “Big Cook, Little Cook” had a glimpse of delicious strawberries being picked on the Tiptree farm in summer, then the strawberries were taken across the fields to the jam factory where they were made into Strawberry Conserve.  The highlight of any event about jam is seeing our special young guests tucking into a cream tea of homemade scones, Tiptree Strawberry jam and a touch of Rodda’s Cornish Clotted Cream.  The film was made for CBeebies “Big Cook, Little Cook” and can be seen on iPlayer for a few weeks.

Exploring the source of our food in a fun way is part of the Tiptree ethos when young visitors come to the farm to see the effort that goes into growing fresh fruit that they find in their local shops.
