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.

Spotlight on The Organic Pantry

Welcome to the Organic Pantry.  Unlike many organic suppliers, we are proud to be a family run organic farm based at Newton Kyme near Tadcaster, North Yorkshire.

The Watson family have farmed the 300 acres at St Helens for over 100 years.  If you come and visit the farm you can find both Jonnie and Fanny working alongside their children to preserve the plant and wildlife for future generations.

Our organic produce has been fully certified since 1999 and is available through our Box Scheme, Farmer’s Markets and our own on-site farm shop. We also have a thriving wholesale business and can supply all our fruit and vegetables on a larger scale. We will deliver straight to your door throughout the North of England, Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Northumberland. We also offer an extensive organic shop online with Organic Boxes, Organic Vegetables, Organic Fruit, Organic Meat, Wholefoods and Organic Food.

We have an on-site farm shop which not only stocks our delicious home-grown produce but we can also supply most of your grocery needs from store-cupboard essentials to fresh dairy. Organic meat and locally produced organic bread are available to pre-order.

The shop is a place to support and promote local produce with a large range of Bracken Hill jams, preserves and chutneys, a range of rape seed oils from Wharfe Valley, a multitude of dried cereals and fruits from Tockwith based Country Products, and tasty Yorkshire crisps.

To coincide with the end of this year's Fairtrade fortnight this month the Community stall will be promoting the work of Fairtrade

News

As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic we have been advised by Leeds City Council that all farmers' markets will be cancelled until further notice. We're really sorry that we aren't able to be open in May but would encourage all our regular customers to check out our regular and guest stallholder pages to consider ways in which you can safely continue to support our traders in these difficult times.

Please check back on our website and Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages for further updates. Stay safe, follow the Government's advice and we hope it won't be too long before we can welcome you back to the Horsforth Farmers' Market.
