Hi to one and all, i would like to share our history with you and our fantastic ideas. i.m Bev and this is Andy. elo!
Andy & Bev met in 2009 whilst out walking thier dogs. ( Max & Rebal) Things began to develop when Andy asked Bev what she was looking for whilst foraging for wild herbs in the woods,like wise when Andy showed Bev last years twisted Hazel Nut shafts for his handmade walking sticks, there ideas grow from there. Combining their years of experience, they soon decided to market their handmade products and produce.Bev is a homeopath and herbalist bringing these two together she has recreated a range of theraputic jams cordials and healing syrups. Andy draws from generations of passed on knowledge from great/grand/fathers and father, in the field of natural survival skills and natural working materials as tools. Bev and Andy have spent all of 2009 and 2010 looking for and searching the Scottish Highland hedgerows, river banks and woodlands for wild fruit, nuts,herbs and natural materials to produce their products.
Herbs have been used for millennia to heal and treat ailments, combining the profound properties of the fruit with healing herbs.Bev has recreated not only something that tases good but does you good too. Also the days are long gone when we were met daily at the door with a spoon of syrup, yet again Bev has recreated the traditional healing syrup from yesteryear. Andy's handmade willow baskets are something to be desired, he has even recreated the traditional clothes peg, his natural walking sticks make the ramble easier and his hawthorn garden (witch) brooms makes life so easy.
Everyone has enjoyed the past two years foraging especially the two dogs and Andy while meeting the locals and thier input and enthsiasm about the traditional ways. We so look forward to this years spring and starting again.
We have many new lines for 2011 and 2012 cant wait to share!
My new venture this new year 2014 is to save the planet and the next generation!

Additional policies and FAQs
Just a little note on how we work. Grannies jams are wild Scottish friuts combined with herbs, great research and prior knowladge has gone into acheiving these combinations of same quality and healing properties, example Scottish wild Bilberry & lavender ;
Bilberries are high in flavonoids which have Antioxidants and Disease- Fighting Properties, helping in;Reducing Blood Sugar Levels, Inflammations,
Atherosclerosis (colesterol), and Painful Menstrual Cycles.

Lavender
It is an Antiseptic, a Relaxant, a Nerve Stimulant, and a Calmative,
It also helps in Hypertension, Headaches, Insomnia, & Dizziness

Grannies homemade Syrups are from times long since forgotten;
Elderberry Syrup
Much of the folklore around Elder suggests its ability to drive away evil spirits. Its branches were hung in doorways of houses, cowsheds, buried in graves and its twigs were carried to ward off evil witches spells.

Elder berry is often incorporated in herbal mixtures to treat influenza, sinusitis, and bronchitis. Other recommended uses include neuralgia, nervous conditions, inflammatory diseases, rheumatism, diabetes, and various infections.
It is also employed as a laxative, and a diuretic for weight loss
“A spoon a day keeps the problems away”
All our products are hand picked, graded and cooked in the same day, to sustain the full flavour and properties of the friut, herbs, nuts etc.

We are from a pet frienly house hold, with two big boys ( Alsians) who get plenty of exercise throughout the year especially the picking seasons. Thats if you can get to the Bilberry bush due to Max eating more then what can be picked.

We are also very health conscious and from a none smoking life, we try are best to be self-sufficient in everything we do. growing our own vegetables, foraging the land to keep us warm and feed us. Andy is fantastic at this collecting wood, shooting the supper, even making the house hold necessities. ( tools, baskets clothes pegs etc)

As our products are natural and organic with no preservatives you may find a natural penicillin has formed on the wax disc on the top of some jams, this holds no harmful bacteria, and, once removed you can enjoy the produce with ease. Once open keep refrigerated and consume within six weeks. Unopened jars will keep for upto six months. ( same applies once opened remove wax disc and refrigerate)

When we have spare money, we like to contribute to the wild life, save our trees and the Scottish National Trust and Heritage charities.
