    "[O]ut of a jam by selling their own preserves[...] We now produce around 2,000 jars a day but it's still very much a local business, using as much Cumbrian produce as possible & employing people who might otherwise have to leave the area to find work. We started with just 6 different types of jams & relish & we now produce 130 varieties using traditional, local ingredients. Each new product is devised with one principle in mind: Things that grow together, go together.[..]" -Hawkshead Relish
