Autumn is here (and a couple of changes)

Autumn is here (and a couple of changes)

  Thanks for your support over recent weeks, we've enjoyed baking each Friday and are thankful that all our preserves are potted up and the honey is off the hives. We entered our honey, along with other bee-related products, in the recent National Honey Show and were delighted to win a First Prize, two Second Prizes and a Third Prize, so if you'd like to buy the best Honey Preserve in London or the Second Best Honey in the County, pop some pots in your basket!   If you drive to collect your orders each week, then please watch out...

Back to Baking

Back to Baking

The kids are back to school and we are back to baking! We've appreciated our summer break, thank you, and have had a little practise at some more complicated/time consuming bakes which we'd love to offer out to customers at some stage. I've had a go at croissants again and was especially delighted with this new seeded sourdough loaf (pictured), the main challenges with baking this loaf on a Friday is that it takes 30 hours to make and is baked using a different technique which limits the number of loaves we can produce. Maybe I try to bake some...

We've got just three more Micro Bakery Fridays before we close for our summer break: 6th, 13th & 20th July. We will then be closed throughout August, as usual, allowing us all to have a well deserved break, opening again on Friday 7th September. With this warm weather, why not...

Business as Usual!

Business as Usual!

How lovely that Spring is now definitely here! We've had some ups and downs over the last couple of months with the #BeastFromTheEast, a Bank Holiday Friday and a Closed Friday, but we are now Business as Usual, baking every Friday right up until 20th* July. *edited We will then be closed for August, as usual, allowing us all to have a well deserved break. We know that everyone has their favourite products from our bakery and we can often guess which order belongs to which customer based on the bread that they choose, but our clever website keeps all...
