August has been an extra busy month, here at the Bakery with two new venues opening with our breads, cakes and savouries; first we had the highly anticipated Gates Nursery Farm Shop that opened on 23rd August with an extensive selection of our products.
Then last weekend saw the old Burtons of Bourne opening as the new Artisan Butchery & Bakery in collaboration with Grasmere Butchers.

Something New to try…..
We are happy to have Leigh’s Bees Natural Honey in all our Shops; if you haven’t already tasted this delicious honey, pop in to sample our four different flavours……….
You will find every jar of Leigh’s Bees honey just as the bees created it. The honey is unprocessed, apart from coarse straining to remove impurities and, where necessary, gentle warming to allow bottling.
Carefully placed apiaries enable Leigh’s Bees to forage a specific range of nectar depending on the time of year and location. That may be sea lavender from the saltmarshes of the North Norfolk coast, swathes of summer flowering blue borage flowers, the Derbyshire heather moors or the ivy-clad hedgerows and woodland of their ‘winter base’ at Narford. Knowing the origin of each and every jar of honey, all of which are unblended means the honeys retain their own unique tastes.
