part in the growth of the estate’s artisan community, and supplies a vast array of hand-crafted products
to independent businesses throughout the East Midlands.
WORDS FROM OUR DIRECTOR
Starting an independent long-fermentation bakery from scratch was a tall order. We were one of the first of a new wave of artisanal bakeries back in 2008, and there were few similar businesses with whom to compare ourselves. There was never any doubt of the demand, however. The quality of our bread spoke for itself.
Our Sourdough is complex, natural and easy to digest, a far cry from the mass-produced white loaves crammed with additives that are widely sold. It is something we are incredibly proud of, yet it isn't the only thing we specialise in. We also make various continental breads and pastries but we always employ the same skills, passion and values to whatever the product.
