Save the Orchards

This year we've created our own campaign called Save the Orchards, which aims to not only support traditional British produce and farming methods, but also help our environment and communities.

Why is it important to Save the Orchards?

Our orchard

Our orchard

Kicking off in December last year, we bought all our clients an orchard tree each for Christmas, our trees were planted in March and we are now proud owners of our own H&J orchards in Somerset. Tending to our trees is the team at Orchard Pig Groundforce, the management arm of Orchard Pig, a company that produces first class West Country cider and apple juice.

Urban Herbs

Urban Herbs

Our H&J herb gardens are popping up all over London, making the journey from soil to plate seem more like a jaunt! Encouraging our chefs and customers alike to grow their own, we’re working in partnership with Marshland Herb Nursery in Cambridgeshire and the Clink charity to create herb garden boxes for our sites. Rare and underused herbs will be appearing in tisanes with infusions freshly brewed from just picked leaves.

We don't need to think about food miles… more like food millimetres. making our herbs the most convenient cooking ingredient you'll come across in the H&J pantry.

Little Hyde Farm Honey

Little Hyde Farm Honey

In a bid to halt the decline of the honeybee, H&J sponsors hives run by devoted beekeeper Martin Rookard, who also happens to be one of our chefs.

Martin’s bees make their home in the pretty countryside town of Ingatestone in Essex, where they dine on a wide variety of wildflowers and yellow rapeseed. This amazing diversity gives the resulting honey a wonderful variation in taste, colour and texture, which even changes throughout the year as the bees’ daily menu alters with the seasons.

Hugh's Fish Fight

Fish Fight

Headed up by British chef Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall, the campaign initially looked at the practice of discards - throwing good fish back into the sea, dead. Thanks to on-going support, Hugh's Fish Fight has already helped changed EU policy. We're now helping the fight to lobby the government for better protection of our seas.
