The Fruit Bowl
Growers of fruit and jam manufacturing in environmentally friendly conditions with no additives. The Fruit Bowl grows and makes delicious fruit jam in the middle of Newchurch, using old-fashioned techniques but with the latest green technology, including a mixture of solar PV and solar thermal hot water, a heat pump and rainwater harvesting. The aim is to be self-sufficient in energy, thus producing the country’s first ‘green jam’, so you can feel doubly good about eating it. No worries about food miles either, as 90% of the fruit used is grown on the owners’ own 3 acre smallholding.
