Painting of the dovedale bakery

Dovedale is the market leader in the baking of gluten free breads with no added yeast. We still use the traditional method of leaven fermentation, which produces loaves of exceptional quality and flavour. The Dovedale loaves are handcrafted and baked with care and pride.

Except for the Paleo and Keto products, all of the Dovedale bread and biscuit range is made using certified organic brown rice flour. We use only filtered water, sea salt and natural ingredients. All of our breads are free of eggs, dairy products and sugar. All of our biscuits and cakes are sweetened only with Nelson bush honey. So any Dovedale product is a guaranteed healthy choice.


Chia seed

Chia is an ancient gluten free grain, one of the four main foods of the Central American civilisations. The Aztecs called Chia the "running food" because their warriors and messengers could run all day on just a handful of Chia.

Now rediscovered, Chia improves human nutrition by providing the richest natural source of Omega 3, Antioxidants and Dietary Fibre. Chia's abundance of Omega 3 fatty acids (the richest natural source of Alpha Linolenic Acid) help promote a wide range of Cardiovascular and Mental health benefits.

Dovedale was the first NZ Bakery to add Chia to its bread in 2006.
