Wild Side Handmade Preserves - The hedgerow's finest

Our Location & Events



Come and see us!

During the summer months we travel the UK's inland waterways, selleng preserves as we go. We usually attend a number of canalside festivals, but in the absence of mass gatherings we travel slowly stopping at villages and canal junctions along the way. The following map shows where we are at the moment.

During the winter months we can be found at home in Aldridge in the West Midlands, making stock ready for the next trading season. We remain open for business during the winter and will happily deliver within a five mile radius of Aldridge, or you can always call in if you are passing.

The following map shows where are are right now, and if you scroll down you will find a list of events we will be attending in the coming months.

If you see that we are in your area and would like to come and sample our wares, just leave us a message on our contact page and we will try and meet up somewhere along the way.
