Thursday Cottage was started in 1963 in a cottage of the same name outside Spaxton, Somerset. For many years, the business was then owned and run by Hugh and Pam Corbin from Lyme Regis, until they sold it to us in 2002.
We are now based at Trewlands Farm in Tiptree, Essex and still operate a small production unit where a variety of different preserves, curds, marmalades and Christmas products are made by hand. The ingredients, the open pan cooking and our products’ distinctive taste and character are little changed from when the company was based in the West Country.
We take great care in choosing the best ingredients and a variety of traditional and unusual fruits are used. All our products are made in small batches. We fill by hand when we can because it keeps the fruit whole and we believe, makes a better product.
