Owen Foster began making jam at 12 years old. Looking for ways to earn some extra money when his job selling free range eggs came to an end, Owen asked his granny to teach him how to make jam. Selling them to his neighbours in Forfar, Owen sold 50 jars in a week and from then, his business Owen’s Angus Jams was born. His range includes jams, marmalades, boozy jams and fruit infused gins, all made with natural ingredients and using traditional methods.
