About Us

“Burtree Puddings is a family-run business stemming from years of experience and passion within the farming and food industry”

Our puddings are all made by us for you, here at Burtree Puddings.

Owned and operated by Robert and Lea Darling alongside their dedicated family, daughter Sarah, their son Andrew and his wife, Nicola. Every product from Christmas pudding to sticky toffee pudding, flapjack to tea loaf is crafted with knowledge, love and care and this has been shown in their successes from local farmer’s markets to international sales orders.

With over 15 years of experience under their belt, it’s no surprise that Burtree Puddings are a popular choice for customers looking for a product that’s not only delicious but is also prepared with the affection and consideration that only comes from a truly homemade dessert. As a local company, it is of incredibly high importance that Burtree Puddings source as many of their ingredients from the area surrounding them. This includes free range eggs, rich English butter and organic double cream from their neighbouring dairy farm.

From our product development process to the end product, everything we do is designed to ensure our products are among the best in the country.

Robert and Lea Darling alongside their family strive to provide puddings that are traditional but inspired.

Their award winning recipes have all been developed over time, not only do they cater to differing palettes but also to those with special dietary requirements. Their fabulous Gluten Free Christmas Pudding is a very fine example of that! Each recipe is made in small batches, by hand in Robert and Lea Darling’s very own farmhouse kitchen which guarantees an all-round, genuine flavour that can impress even the most discerning of dessert connoisseurs.

Developing, creating and preparing these delicious puddings is a process that would only be possible with the feedback from regular and new customers alike. Both Robert and Lea are always thankful for a report back from those sampling their family crafted products. This is just one of the many reasons they strive to attend food festivals, farmers markets, agricultural shows and competitions all over the UK whenever possible. They love meeting people face-to-face to exhibit the produce they’ve worked so hard to get just right.

Burtree Pudding’s unique identity is simple – a family run, family operated business with a drive and passion to create some of the best pudding’s their customers have ever tasted. Their aim – to give each and every person a taste of tradition and modernity in just one spoonful. Why not try to catch a member of the Darling family at a nearby food festival or farmers market or perhaps order a batch of the bestselling Sticky Toffee Pudding online, after all, the proof is most certainly in the pudding.
