LOVINGLY ARTISAN

BREAD WITH NORTHERN SOUL
Long before sourdough became fashionable, it was an essential aspect of the way I lead my life as a baker. The disciplines of blending varied flours in a quest for the perfect combination is my perpetual motivation as an artisan; just as a barista blends beans in their quest for the perfect coffee.

DOUBLE FERMENTED
ARTISAN SOURDOUGH

from ancient grains

GRAIN + SOUR
It’s all about blending our flours boldly with impact, flavour and taste in mind. Each sourdough loaf has it’s own unique characteristics; appearance, aroma, flavour and structure. The consumer has woken up to what’s important to them; exceptional foods with unquestionable origin, taste and heritage.
let’s talk grain
Heritage grains are the heart and soul of our approach to artisan sourdough. Having a relationship with our farmer, miller and his harvest is one of the fundamental factors in what makes our sourdough recipes unique.
now let’s talk sour

We share a real understanding and connection with our leaven, which we created 30 years ago from a handful of organic raisins. Over time it has developed its complexities, characteristics, unique aroma and its robust ability to leaven all of our daily breads.

We believe that the lactic fermentation within our leaven is the essence of health and well-being. Our sourdough breads are a product of this ancient method of preparing and preserving foods. Our ancestors left a legacy that we can learn from – keep it simple, celebrate nature and don’t be tempted by a gimmick.
