Crop Swaps

We even do crop swaps! Accepting fruit and vegetables from friends and family in exchange for jams, chutneys or marmalades. This is another great way of making sure that what nature produces isn’t wasted. If you are in the Cardiff area and would be interested in crop swaps please get in touch through the contact page.

I know many of you have apple trees, however I have access to lots of lovely old apple trees which keep my freezer full in autumn, so I not able to take any more apples.  The crops I’d be particularly interested in, are courgettes, peppers (green or red), green beans (French or runner), red tomatoes, plums or damsons.

  • Dragons Breath Jelly! Totally awesome! Never seen my hubby eat jam on toast! Ate half a jar with 4 rounds of toast in one sitting! Not its intended use but he absolutely loves it! 10/10! Excellent quality and value! We will be back for more! Thank you Penylan Preserves!!!!! Xxxx

  • I have lived off strawberry and prosecco jam with my croissant for the last few weeks. It is the best. Love all of them!
  • I bought a jar of their Hot Christmas Chutney on Sunday and it's almost gone. Need more of this in my life!!
  • Bought a selection of preserves and pickles for Christmas. Stunning is an understatement! Everyone loved them. And the Marmalade! No wonder it’s a Gold winner!
  • Raspberry Jam is always my top pick but I can't live without the superb Lemon Curd either. My other half is more of a savoury man and has to have his stock of piccalilli and spiced marrow chutney - he's quite fussy, so to get his vote is a major plus.

Award-winning jams and preserves made by hand in the Welsh capital.
