Here was an idea for a business, right in their own backyard, and today with great passion and determination, they’ve grown that into a highly successful local business. It is said there are some who cannot eat their meal without Franklin Road Preserves.

Having made pickles for our family and friends for several years, they encouraged us to sell the pickles rather than give them away, thus Franklin Road Preserves was launched in 2013. I have spent several years in the bio organics industry and have great passion for recycling organic matter wherever possible. All the fresh produce used in our preserves is home grown using organic methods

The all-time favourites are Eggplant Churney (Kasundi), Bread & Butter Cucumbers, Nan’s Apple Sauce and Roast Tomato Sauce. The bread and butter cucumber recipe was handed down from Richard’s maternal grandmother who was a keen gardener with whom Richard spent many happy hours in her veggie garden as a boy.
