Our Bread

 

Sourdough Breads

 

Our Sourdough are the breads that we are best known for. While other bakeries might use yeast to get their breads to rise, we use traditional slow fermentation techniques letting the sourdough starter do its job over 48 hours – this is what gives our sourdough bread its really rustic charm.

 

And there’s another good reason for taking our time. Our artisan bakers knead rather than stir the dough (stirring is how most processed breads are made). The kneading takes longer and requires a lot of skill, but it means that many people who have a low tolerance to gluten and high levels of yeast can enjoy our breads, as they are more easily digestible when made in this way.

 

All of our hand-crafted, naturally leavened, sourdough breads are made from scratch, fresh every day in our Botley bakery and begin with the same 4 core ingredients: sourdough starter, locally milled wheat from Shipton Mill, water and salt. We then use whole-wheat or other local flour types and add seeds and grains to then offer a wonderful variety of different sourdoughs. The range includes:
