Shepherd's Bakery started in Chieveley in 1898 offering a door-to-door delivery service. Since then many things have changed but Shepherd's has remained a constant in the village, although now a much bigger business than it was then. So it is with pride that Shepherd's returns to its roots 110 years later by once again delivering bread door-to-door.
Baking was always our ambition and after my work experience with Andrew Shepherd, then owner of Shepherd’s Bakery, I went on to work at the bakery at weekends and school holidays. After leaving school I went full time there, moving up the ranks to bakery manager. In 1999 we had the opportunity to buy the business.
“Although the types of customers may change, our process and traditional method of baking remain largely the same. I love being able to introduce our gorgeous bread and rolls to new customers who are always amazed and excited by the taste and smell of ‘real bread’, and how well it keeps.”
Most of our bread and roll products are clean label. Just flour, water, salt, yeast.
For the best “every day “loaf made with full fermentation methods and only key ingredients nothing more.
