Damson Jam

Damson Jam from Springdale

Springdale's Damson Jam

“Took a trip up to Wyesham having been told about produce from Springdale and was not disappointed. The Cappuccino cake was a delight and to get proper Damson jam is a trip down memory lane. Congratulations on being enterprising in a year of disappointments, well done to all concerned.” Wendy

Damsons are more suitable for cooking than eating raw and are especially good for jams.

Damsons at Springdale
Freshly picked damsons

Here at Springdale we have a number of different varieties of Damson trees and we make a strong fruity yet, quite tart jam, delicious on toast, on scones or even in custard or rice pudding

Damsons are small stoned fruits with a dark blue skin and a strong, sour flavour. They are similar to plums and a member of the rose family.

Jam Season

The jam making season is well underway at Springdale! 2020 has been a very good year for fruit so far. We have freshly made Strawberry Jam, Strawberry and Gooseberry Jam, Strawberry and Rhubarb Jam, Gooseberry Jam and Loganberry Jam


All our jams are made from fruit grown at Springdale.

Loganberries 2020

The loganberries are early this year

They love sunshine and we’ve had plenty of that during May.

Each flower develops one berry, which has a juicier and sharper flavour than a raspberry. So we’ve been picking them as quickly as they ripen and making delicious jam.

The berries don’t all ripen at the same time so keep going back for more!

Greenhouses 1 and 2

In 2019 we decided to buy a greenhouse to help raise more plants from seed and for chillis during the summer.

Strawberries 2020

Strawberry crop at Springdale this year is amazing. Already picked 128lbs and it’s only the middle of June. Strawberries are on the menu every morning for breakfast.

Freshly made jam is delicious! A real taste of summer.
