We are a local artisan bakery and workers co-op. All our bread is slow-fermented and made by hand using organic flour, in our small Leeds-based bakery. We are passionate about making great tasting bread that is good for people, and is made using simple, high quality ingredients, organic and local where possible.

We bake a range of sourdough bread, from white sourdough, to German-style 100% rye bread, and also offer non-sourdough breads such as ciabatta loaves and our deli rye, a mild rye loaf combined with caraway seeds. We also make doughnuts, filled with either custard or jam. In all cases, the dough is fermented, hand-shaped and made using as many organic ingredients as possible.

As a values-led enterprise, we aim to provide an ethical and enjoyable livelihood for all our workers whilst reducing the environmental impact of the bread we produce.

We are based on the co-op values of democracy, self-help, self-responsibility, equality, equity and solidarity. We aim for a non-hierarchical workplace where empowerment of workers, care of the community and collective self-reliance are at the core of how we function.

Jonathan Allum writes:

"The business was started in 1945 by Albert Allum, in Wakefield Market, and has been in the family for three generations. Meat was rationed to Albert and he was the first to sell heifers (female cattle).
 
If he had sold bulls (male cattle), it would have enabled him to sell more meat. The concept of quality not quantity was born.

Today I run the business from our two modern shop premises, ensuring fresh produce for our online butchers.

Product quality is of the utmost importance and to achieve this we engage in solid working practices and solid relationships with our suppliers who produce the type of meat we demand. Consistent standards are important in the sourcing and manufacturing of our meat as this helps achieve customer satisfaction.

All carcasses are hand prepared on the premises, by our knowledgeable skilled staff, to ensure the product is of the very best quality and taste."
