Cottage Pride

Margaret Brownlee has been producing speciality preserves in County Armagh for over 20 years. The inspiration came from her late father, Thomas Lonsdale Brownlee whose advice was to make jams free of any preservatives or additives. By using the finest quality fruit sourced from local growers and recipes handed down through the generations, Margaret has built a very successful business covering both North and South of Ireland. Producing by hand in small batches retains the level of quality which is so important to Margaret.

Brownlee Handmade Preserves are made in a variety of flavours including strawberry, raspberry, rhubarb and ginger and blackcurrant. Other products include a range of marmalades as well as speciality cranberry sauce.
