From Microbakery to Bakehouse
We are an artisan bakery based in Malvern, Worcestershire. Family-run and organic, we celebrate history and locality through crafting traditional sourdough. Myself and my husband have been baking to order from our home kitchen; preparing, baking, packaging and delivering on a daily basis, as well as taking care of our two sons, the garden and the allotment.
This past year, after heaps of hard work, we’ve had the joy of establishing our bakery and baking bread for our local community in Worcestershire, Herefordshire and beyond. We started baking with a wish to share our heritage, connection to food and tradition; so it warms us to see that demand has risen quite considerably these past few months!
We established during the global pandemic, and adapted our business model to accommodate online orders. But for us to be able to reach this growing demand, we can no longer work from our home kitchen. We have outgrown our space, and we need your support in expanding.
For a while now, our dream has been to open an artisan bakehouse on the high street, in the heart of Malvern. The Bakehouse will offer our signature bakes, cakes, treats, organic coffee and speciality organic tea blends in an exciting, inviting and enjoyable space.
Our menu will offer a range of traditional handmade sourdough breads, focaccias, cakes and birthday cakes. We will also offer sourdough sandwiches and local products such as honey or handmade jams, flours, and many more.
The Bakehouse will also include our Sourdough School, offering the opportunity to learn and experience crafting real sourdough bread. Lessons will run for individuals as well as groups, so that you can enjoy a special day or celebration with friends and family in a unique style.
So far, we have secured a property in Great Malvern, situated close to your favourite independent shops in the town centre. We have also organised a team who will work on refurbishing and upgrading the new bakehouse.
We are proud about being sustainable. We use only sustainable packaging, so that means all our food and drink containers are made from natural and recycled materials that are fully recyclable or biodegradable. We have a strong labelling policy, we are fully transparent and provide honest information about the source of our ingredients. We also use and support local suppliers to minimise our footprint. Until now we have been baking-to-order to minimise food waste, to continue this the new bake house will work with local charities and food banks to donate any excess produce and support disadvantaged communities in Malvern and Worcester.
We have lots of exciting and exclusive offers & products to reward you with, and to thank everyone who has been kind enough to pledge/donate and help turn our dream into reality.
In return for any much appreciated donations, we will be offering a variety of vouchers, products and services that can be used either online, or in our new bakehouse - along with some exclusive offers and discounts.
These vouchers will be sent to everyone that has selected a reward option in the crowdfunder. There's no need to panic if you live far away from the Bakehouse, we will provide online classes and support through Sourdough School, and if you want an alternative gift to send to someone- Christmas is just around the corner and there's something for everyone!
Please note: for multiple pledges please add the total amount to the donate box at the top. Once your donation has been made, you'll have the option to leave a comment - list all items you wish to pledge for.
Once the campaign has finished I'll be in touch to confirm all delivery addresses and personal notes for any rewards going as gifts.
Our aim is to raise £15.000
When we reach £4000 we will be able to purchase new oven. Very important as it will help us to increase capacity.
Reaching next milestone of £9000 will help us refurbish and redecorate our new shop. We need to adapt place into fully working bakehouse.
When we raise £12000 it will help us to purchase extra equipment, small display fridge for our sandwiches and cakes.
And finally, when we raise £3000 and reach our £15000 goal we will be able to open & organise our Sourdough School, purchase working table and chairs, plus all materials to provide good sourdough classes.
With your support, we will be able to continue on our journey, move onto the next chapter and beyond and (hopefully) conquer the world one sourdough at a time!!

Some lovely words from our customers...
"This is exceptional bread. Made with the finest ingredients by an artisan bread maker using traditional recipes handed down by her family. Aleksandra makes bread full of flavour with a soft texture and delicious crust. Thank you Aleksandra" David McCann
"This truly beautiful bread. It tastes amazing, not just because of the top quality, local ingredients but because of the tradition, care and love it's made with. Eat bread from Evendine Sourdough and you won't buy from a supermarket again!" Lizzie Lane
