OUR PROJECT :

-----------------------------

We want to get our village bakery up and running and we need your help!

We are lucky enough to call Long Buckby home and have done so since we were born. For us home is all about family, friends, and most importantly for good food. We want to share this with you. 

Born & Bread will be a community-focused Bakery and Café that reconnects with village culture. We want to provide a warm and welcoming environment for people to meet and catch up. We aim to produce fresh bread, serve coffee, tea, cakes, pastries, soft drinks, and light lunches at a competitive but fair price. Our aim is to become a hub within the growing village community and develop the bakery side of our business to be one of the best real bread producers in the county. 

Work is already well under way and things are starting to take shape! 

We are looking for funding to help us make the most out of our new space.  The foundations are in place to get us open; however, the money raised by this campaign will help further the developments and allow us to purchase specialist bakery equipment. This would give us the opportunity to increase our product range and produce the style and quality of baked goods we would love to bring to the village. 

We want to celebrate local Northamptonshire producers and their products; so we will try where possible to source our ingredients from the surrounding areas and local growers. 

In the future we would love to develop other areas of the business including pizza nights, teaching cookery and baking courses, renting the space to local clubs and groups and hosting fine dining/ supper club events. Having made good connections with the schools and local businesses we are excited about working with the village community. 

We believe Born & Bread Bakery and Café will be the inviting new village hub, coffee shop, and local bakery that Long Buckby needs.

We would love your support to take us to the next level!
