Welcome to The Wild Walnut, home of the best artisan jams, jellies, marmalades, chutneys, relishes, vinegars and sauces in New Zealand.


Due to recent flooding, The Wild Walnut cafe is temporarily closed while we get it back into tip top shape. We'll be looking forward to opening again, better than ever, later this year – keep an eye out for our official opening to be announced soon!

Crafting preserves has been our specialty since 1997, and today we are taking the classic favourites and giving them a modern taste.  All of our products are handcrafted in New Zealand and made from natural, locally sourced ingredients of only the finest quality.

We believe in making the most of seasonal produce and all of our products are vegetarian, while many are suitable for those who are vegan, gluten-free or dairy-free. Leaving no room for doubt, everything we produce is labeled with full ingredient and nutritional information.

If you're local to the South Otago region, pop in to see us at the Café, or check out the Catering page to get delicious Wild Walnut fare at your next event.
