Hello, welcome to Grange Bakery!
Grange Bakery is owned by Julia Sayburn and Paul Hughes who for 13 years ran the award-winning Howbarrow Farm organic box scheme. A chance encounter led them to purchase the bakery in 2007 when it was about to close after nearly 100 years of making bread in Grange Over Sands. Developing the local food economy and encouraging independant local shops is a passion for Paul and Julia. They took on the challenge and now enjoy a thriving and growing business.
The fine tradition of baking over the past 100 years continues in Paul and Julia's care. They continue to introduce new products, building on the popular multiseed and wholemeal loaves, baguettes and rolls, country grain bread and ciabattas made with extra-virgin olive oil. The sourdough bloomer has become a recent successful addition and the Last Wolf rye, made from Cartmel Brewery's "Last Wolf" Ale, is rapidly growing in popularity. They also encourage the baking of traditional favourites - iced vanilla slices, custard tarts, Viennese whirls, millionaire's shortbread, current squares, chocolate brownies and all-butter shortbread.
Their approach is simple - they use the best ingredients, great recipes and have a highly-skilled team that bake bread every day to make delicious, hand-crafted food for their customers.
