We are a non-profit-distributing company based in Lamancha in the Scottish Borders. Our mission is to serve and involve the community by making excellent, nutritious bread using organic ingredients and distinctive local products, helping to create a more sustainable and health-enhancing food system.
Our bread is simply made with natural ingredients. It does not use any processing aids, artificial additives, flour ‘improvers’, preservatives or artificial anything! All we need is flour, water, yeast and salt. We add only natural things like seeds, nuts, cheese, dried fruit, olives and olive oil and butter. The salt content of our breads is less than 1% and we use stone ground wholemeal flour. Our signature Border Country breads also contain a proportion of locally-grown and milled Scottish flour. And, by using organic ingredients, our bread is higher in nutritional value and lower in potentially harmful petrochemical residues.
Community-supported baking follows the model of community-supported agriculture; people make a commitment to buy the products and, more importantly, have a genuine interest in the story behind it. They care about how the bread tastes and how much it costs.
