About Sam

BatchMade is owned and operated by Sam Talbot (me) and established in 2017. We are based on the Mornington Peninsula.

I started cooking with my grandmother and learnt to make jams and chutneys using home grown fruit and vegetables. Luckily, I inherited my grandma's hand written recipe book and have adapted many of our current recipes from it. 

I spent almost 30 years working in the clothing industry sourcing, developing, producing and teaching fashion for men, women and kids. Until a tap on my shoulder reminded me about the quality of life and BatchMade was born. 

Now my ideal day is spent in the kitchen cooking jams, chutneys and pickles for BatchMade. We like to source locally grown fruit and vegetables from the 'Pen' where possible. And often trade surplus home grown fruit or vegetables for some of our preserves. Contact us if you have a glut of fruit or vegetables that you would like to trade. 

Our preserves are also stocked at select gourmet food stores and cafes around Australia. 

You can meet me at Elwood Farmers Market on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month and also the Emu Plains Market during the season. 

Sign up to our mailing list below to find out where I will be next. 

Thank you for your interest and support. Enjoy your jams!
