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

Stretch Target

Thank you all for the wonderful support that has brought us so far. Crowdfunder has now extended our project by 2 weeks so that we can reach for the stars and aim for our £20k stretch target.

This additional funding would allow us to future proof the new bakery by buying an even better model of refurbished oven, as well as supporting the premises' rent for the first few months to allow us to concentrate on developing and delivering our workshops and lessons as well as to build on our supply chains so we can help reach parts of Leicestershire and Rutland where people cannot get true sourdough.

We appreciate all of your support, shares of our project and kind comments. Please help us in the final push so we can really spread the word (and the flavour) of this ancient and unique artisan craft.

 Lots of love,

Ami & Lance
