Jennie Palmer

Hi, I’m Jennie, a creative food loving mum working from my home in rural Yorkshire.

For the last 12 years I have worked within our family’s business, Breckenholme, leading the marketing, design and development of Breckenholme’s regional and national brands, Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil and Charlie & Ivy’s. Whilst working as Marketing Manager at Breckenholme, I also offer freelance support to small businesses’ aiding them with their marketing and creative requirements.

Passionate about all things food and drink I’m madly proud of the community of food producers, farmers and small businesses I have the pleasure to work alongside over the last 12 years. I love to cook, and food is always at the centre of my family and work life. There’s nothing I love more than creating recipes with the wonderful ingredients Yorkshire has to hand, and getting my camera out to attempt to capture them.

My life has been spent within independent, creative businesses and my past as a costume designer and maker and as a freelancer helps me see the food industry from a fresh creative perspective.

With a history in theatre and bespoke bridal design, my creative history and portfolio is incredibly varied. Although my stitching days are behind me, I’ve kept some of my bridal portfolio in here as it is part of mny creative journey, bringing me to where I am today.
