Handmade in Our Kitchen – Not a Factory – Real Welsh Jam, Marmalade & Welsh Chutney – Our Magical Flavours
Artisan food producers of Welsh jam, Welsh chutney & Welsh marmalade, we make a premium quality product by hand in small batches here in our kitchen in Clydach, South Wales. We are proud to have maintained our 5 Star Food Hygeine Rating. (We are also happy to supply retail outlets – contact us for Trade prices.) Here is our current product list for mail order.
Magical stories of adventure, bravery, heroes & villains for children and adults. The children’s books cover a range of ages, and all have a greyhound in there somewhere! The family books tell the true story of our rescued greyhounds.

Who is the Crafty Dog?
Our mascot and Director was our Penny, otherwise known as The Penster or Lady Penelope of Crafty Dog Towers. She crossed over the Rainbow Bridge in March 2021 after a short illness. She was a great boss and business manager and will be a hard act to follow.
Read Penny’s book and see how she went from abandoned ex-racer to manager of Crafty Dog Cymru.
