Many people think of strawberries as a treat - which they are! But do you know just how good these little gems are for your health? 🍓 Strawberries contain more vitamin C than oranges (and less calories) 🍓 Strawberries rank in the top 10 fruit and veg with the highest antioxidant capacity! Strawberries contain anti-aging flavonoid antioxidants called anthocyanin and catechin which have been associated with lowering the risk of chronic disease and are beneficial for heart health and blood sugar control. 🍓 Studies also link strawberry consumption with eye health, neurological health, protection against skin damage (such as sun damage), lower levels of inflammation, and even decreased arthritis pain due to their ability to fight free radical damage. 🍓 Teeth whitening? Ok maybe this hasn’t been proven yet but it’s totally worth trying!
Ancient Romans used strawberries to treat a range of health problems, believing that strawbs had medicinal powers. Interested? Google it!

Is it still #jamfirst if the jam is marmalade and the scone is a teacake...? 👀
Anyone fancy a saffron bun with marmalade and clotted cream? 🍊 Our mega fruity marmalade is packed with flavour and is most commented on at our tastings. 🍊 Have you ever tried marmalade with clotted cream?
We have our first flowers of 2018! As they flowers are opening now, we’ve released the bees into the greenhouse. 🐝 We had to wait for the flowers to open before released the bees. Otherwise they would force the flowers open before they were ready, resulting in a very misshapen berry!
It’s Monday so we’re spreading some Cornish love with this great photo from @thecoffeeloungestives ❤️ Now that’s what proper strawberry jam looks like 😉 ・・・
