With the extra money we will be able to buy a coffee machine out right, to serve amazing coffee five days a week. 


SUMMARY

We are looking to our customers and community to help us on the next step of our baking journey.

We have secured a lease for a shop in the Ouseburn, which will allow us to sell our baked goods, along with great coffee and amazing sandwiches, 5 days a week.

We've managed to save most of the money we need to make this happen but we need a little help to cross the finish line. The money will be used to help set up the shop and contribute towards a bigger deck oven. This means we’ll have capacity to continue to supply our wholesale customers aswell as providing our shop with enough baked goods and treats for you to enjoy more days of the week.

WHO ARE WE?

We started Northern Rye in 2017 from our flat with one little oven, which we still bake in today. Following our success with our first pop-up bakery at the COOKHOUSE, we the went onto hold more pop-ups at other cafes and shops.

In Summer 2018, Robbie gave up his job and decided to bake full time. We rented a unit from the council and held our own pop-ups from our new space and slowly built up our wholesale business too. In Spring 2019, we moved to a bigger unit and started our online pre-order service and Saturday bakes.

We've also been running monthly bread courses, where we’ve really enjoyed meeting and teaching so many people who are passionate about bread and food.

This new adventure has already given us the opportunity to employ local people aswell as building a community around the baked goods we sell. We don’t want this to stop any time soon.

THE PROJECT

With your help, we hope to raise the extra money we need to set up our new shop in the Ouseburn aswell as buying a bigger deck oven.

At the moment, we bake from three semi-professional ovens and we've almost outgrown their capacity. It’s time for us to invest in a bigger oven. With this, we can continue our wholesale orders aswell as giving our customers a greater range of products.

During the past two years, we have slowly been able to employ and train other passionate people to work at the bakery. The shop will allow us to expand our team at Northern Rye aswell as supporting other local independent businesses, whose products we’ll be selling or using in the shop.

With this next step, we plan to continue giving our customers great pastries and breads alonside amazing coffee and a range of fantastic tasting sandwiches for the public and local businesses to enjoy.

WE NEED YOUR HELP

Northern Rye is totally self funded to date and all the money we've made has been invested back into the business. We have managed to save a large chunk, but need your help to get to our goal.

This is where you come in....

In exchange for your support, we have some great rewards to say thankyou for being part of our bakery.
