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 buy the bakery in 2007 when it was about to close after nearly 100 years of bread production in the town. With a history of developing the local food economy and saving small shops on the high street it was a challenge we had to take on! We have previously, with a small group of organic farmers and butcher Mark Duckworth, saved Dales butchers from closure in Kirkby Lonsdale.
If it ain't broke don't fix it...... the fine tradition of baking over the past 100 years continues in our care. We have introduced new products, our Multiseed Loaf and Ciabatta with Extra Virgin Olive Oil spring to mind, but continue to produce favourites that your 'Granny' would remember from childhood, Vanilla Slices, Viennese Whirls, Battenberg Cakes, Dead Fly Pie (oops I mean Current Square) and All Butter Shortbread, to name but a few.
Our approach is simple; we combine the best ingredients, some great recipes, an excellent team of staff and a little bit of good honest hard won skill to produce tasty, fresh, hand crafted products for our customers daily.
