Founded in 1976, not by a baker but by a visionary with principles about how good food should be made, The Village Bakery has always been at the forefront of the organic movement. Making its reputation by swimming against the tide of the use of additives and preservatives in mass produced bread and cakes, it uses natural processes, artisan methods and interesting ingredients to make its pioneering ranges.The Village Bakery is a success story of a real village bakery - a business based at the foothills of the Pennines in an unspoilt area of rural Cumbria, which has become one of the leading and most respected organic bakery brands in the UK. We strive for real food produced organically with interesting flavours and textures, nutritional thoughtfulness and environmental responsibility and as a result of this have been consistently rewarded by a string of fine food awards. We also have an award winning range of products suitable for those with special dietary requirements. These bakery products are made in a purpose built and dedicated gluten, wheat and dairy free bakery.
