Organic and locally-milled flour, French sea salt from Guérande and water. That is all that goes into our bread.
Naturally leavened, our bread is fermented for hours to allow the gluten to break down, aiding digestion and adding real flavour. It is then baked at a high, intense heat giving the loaf a wonderful blistered crust and soft, light, delicious creamy crumb.
It's how it has always been made and how great bakers continue to make bread today.
At the 2019 & 2018 World Bread Awards, our bread won the Sourdough category.
We learn with each mornings bake.
Pastonacre is a bakery based in Cley-next-the-Sea on the beautiful North Norfolk coast - an area once called Pastonacres.
Currently we are wholesale only, but will be opening kiosk in Cley late in 2019 where we will sell our bread, doughnuts and pastries direct from the bakery.
We bake small batches of naturally-leavened, bread each day from locally grown and milled organic flours.
Bread is now available to buy fresh from the oven every morning Tuesday - Saturday at Picnic Fayre in Cley, Humble Pie in Burnham Market, Stiffkey Stores of Stiffkey & Back to the Garden just outside Holt.
At various days in the week we also supply freshly baked bread to Brancaster Stores and the restaurants The Anchor in Morston, The Hero in Burnham Overy Staithe, Wiveton Hall Cafe, The Wiveton Bell, The Dun Cow in Salthouse, North Street Bistro in Burnham Market and The Moorings in Blakeney.
If you are a local business that would like to serve our bread please do get in touch.
Bread is baked Tuesdays - Saturdays, at the moment there will be no bread available on Sunday or Monday.
We are a small business, supported by the local community, so 5p from each loaf sold goes towards supporting local community projects along our beautiful coastline.
We are really proud that in our first year of business Pastonacre supported the Cley Old Harbour Project and now from September 2018 we will be donating to our two local primary schools - Blakeney & Langham Village Schools.
Our Bakery is powered from 100% renewable electricity.
