We want to expand our tiny bakery so that we can bring REAL sourdough bread to all of Rutland and Leicestershire!

Incredible News!

Thanks to your incredible support, we have reached our target with one week to go!

Now we have moved on to our stretch target. This will allow us to buy an even better oven and also support our move to a new business premises - which will mean that our tiny Rutland cottage can finally become a home again and not a bakery! The business premises are the thing which will give us the capacity to deliver our sourdough workshops as we will have much more space. This is how we really hope to make a difference to our local community, by helping people learn new skills and educating about this traditional artisan craft.

We have been overwhelmed by the kind support and messages we have received. Our project has been featured in the Leicester Mercury, on BBC Radio Leicester, in a number of Rutland's fine publications and newsletters and on the Real Bread Campaign. We promise to work passionately on our mission to bring true sourdough to the people of Leicestershire and Rutland.

Please continue to support and share our project so we can make the Rise of the Sourdough Empire even bigger and better than we ever dreamed possible!
