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


Well, here we are 1 year on after our re-opening following our flooding-mandated facelift! Come in from 9 to 5 to discover the newly made over Wild Walnut, pick up a coffee and treats, and celebrate one of Otago's favourite treasures.

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.

Entertaining over the holiday season? Or looking for a little something different for the family? Check out our delicious, healthy recipes section and get in touch if you would like to contribute one of your own recipes using our products.
