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. Food yards, really.
This website is under construction, and will shortly include details of varieties,
with links to customers and sponsors, and all the other stuff you need to know.
