Every loaf is gently mixed, lovingly hand crafted & baked with pride. We deliver daily to our retail customers and mail order is available to individual buyers. Importantly, there are no emulsifiers (preservatives) added to our bread. By using a process of vacuum packaging and gas flushing, your loaf remains fresher far longer than with regular packaging.
** COVID 19 UPDATE - at this time our couriers are experiencing extreme volumes of freight. Delivery may take an extra several days (and up to 10 days for rural customers) **
We are based in Nelson so North Island customers can expect delivery within 3 days (South Island 2 days) from the time it leaves Nelson.
For rural deliveries please allow for an extra day. There is also a $5 Shipping charge for rural deliveries.
Please note that we bake our bread Monday - Wednesday so any order recieved after Tuesday, may not ship until the following week (subject to product availability).
All our Breads are risen with the traditional technique of Levain (Leaven) once known to all bakers before the discovery of Bakers Yeast in the mid-19th century.
Using only flour and filtered water, wild yeast cultures of much lower virulence than bakers yeast, slowly develop and impart their unique piquant flavour to our breads. This gentle process also creates lactobacilli which breaks down proteins and vitamins and makes the flour more digestible.
In addition to our quality ingredients, the time taken for our leavens to mature is a key component of the Dovedale Method. Accordingly, take the time to enjoy your loaf!
