The age-old debate. One of Great Britain’s oldest traditions, the Traditional Cream Tea. Which is the best way to make a Traditional Cream Tea? Is it Cream then Jam? Jam then Cream? Or does it just not matter? Either way, just to make sure we are all on the same page before we get into this, we’ll make some things clear. A Devonshire Cream Tea consists of clotted cream spread on the bottom of a scone with a nice big dollop of strawberry jam on top. A Cornish Cream Tea consists of Jam spread on the bottom with a dollop of clotted cream on top.

2016 is now officially in the history books. A year that will be forever remembered as the year Britain voted to leave the European Union and the year the United States of America voted for Donald Trump as their new President. It was a year full of surprises and events that nobody could have predicted at the start of 2016. Now here we are at the start of 2017. A time to reflect and learn from what has happened in the last year and a time to look ahead to what is in store in 2017.
We’ve brought the tinsel down from the loft, untangled the tree lights and picked up an extra box of cards. It can only be that sweet time of year, Christmas.

Well, we had great fun last week! Thursday 6th October was National Poetry Day, so we decided to celebrate with our friends on Facebook. We set a challenge – any 4 jars of our preserves for the individual who can come up with the best Limerick about preserves. For those who don’t know, a limerick is a humorous poem consisting of five lines. The first, second, and fifth lines must have seven to ten syllables while rhyming and having the same verbal rhythm. The third and fourth lines only have to have five to seven syllables, and have to rhyme with each other and have the same rhythm. We had so many great entries we thought that we absolutely must put together a blog to share them. We hope you enjoy them.
This is the story of how Highfield started out, all the way back in 1984. Margaret Thatcher was the prime minister; Thomas the Tank Engine first appeared on our screens; The Princess of Wales gave birth to Prince Harry and the English £1 note was withdrawn from circulation. To go back to the very start though, we go back to 1980, the year Ian and Jennifer Fraser moved from Scotland to Devon into what would soon become The Highfield House. Ian and Jennifer began to grow a vineyard and produce their own homemade wines. By 1984 slowly but surely passersby began to visit the Vineyard to have a look around so as a result, Ian and Jennifer decided to open a shop so tourists could purchase some Highfield Vineyard wine. On the back of this ‘Highfield Vineyards’ was formed.
