Thank you to everyone for helping us achieve our target. We are almost there and still have few days to go. We are now looking at the stretch which will help with the unit rents and first few bills. This is awesome and amazing. Grateful for all you sourdough lovers. A warm invite awaits you all here at Bisbrooke Artisans and we look forward to seeing you all soon. Best wishes Ami & Lance
