Our bakers pride themselves on making ‘real’ bread using traditional methods with simple ingredients: flour, water, sea salt and our own nurtured sourdough cultures or a little fresh yeast, and most important of all - time.
Though we have industrial mixers, every loaf is scaled and shaped by hand – it takes time but it’s worth it! Baking is an ancient skill dating back centuries, crossing many cultures and civilisations but in recent years the popularity of sourdough has undergone a dramatic revival – for good reason!
Long fermentation creates fantastic flavours and really improves the keeping quality without the need for additives. Many people find sourdoughs and other slow-rise bread easier to digest than industrial loaves. Sourdough bacteria break down the proteins in gluten that some people react to, making them more digestible. You can read more about the benefits of sourdough here. But really we just recommend eating it because it’s delicious!
Here's an interesting long read from the Guardian Newspaper we came across, about some other bakers and grain producers, who like us, are trying to provide a sustainable healthy loaf.
Alongside our range of bread we make delicious cakes, scones, brioche burger buns, and pastries. Some of these are served daily in our cafe but we also supply other stockists and food outlets in Exeter! Please get in touch if you would like to enquire about our wholesale options.
