We make our bread throughout the day rather than through the night in contrast to many other bakeries. We do this for a few reasons, that it provides our customers with fresher bread that has not been waiting overnight for delivery and provides in our view a better quality of life for our bakers. The inevitable downside however is that we do not have fully stocked shelves first thing in the morning as most of our bread is brought out fresh and often still warm from the oven. The only exceptions being bread made predominantly from rye flour which is better eaten the next day and beyond as they have pronounced longevity, and our 100% wholemeal which has similar qualities.
We use Bioreal Organic Yeast, normally fresh but sometimes dried when stocks are unavailable, or our own natural sourdough starters whom we’ve christened Johnson, Snow White and Dominic. Commercial yeast production involves artificial growth substances and other chemicals such as sulphuric acid, ammonia, ammonium salts and synthetic vitamins. Organic yeasts are cultured in organic nutrient solutions made from organic grain and pure spring water and all raw materials and microorganisms are non-GMO.
Our bread is made completely onsite, shaped by hand and baked in handmade ovens imported from a lovely family in Belgium. Each oven uses no more power than a household kettle and yet produces bread of a quality that matches any large conventional deck oven.
