  WHEATBERRY BAKERY - GLASGOW

Wheatberry is an artisan bakery and patisserie

that draws inspiration from well tested and

perfected French techniques. Cassie and Wojtek,

a husband and wife team who relocated to Glasgow from Brighton just over two years ago, have a deep love for laminated doughs and everything sourdough!

 

Cassie is a Pastry Master and Wojtek is a Bread Magician! Their ethos is being a local bakery in every sense of the word, and using locally sourced, seasonal ingredients for all their ever evolving bakes. 

The couple puts a lot of care in the making and preparing of their bread and pastries.

The hand-crafted bread goes through a long fermentation which allows for the dough to develop

a full flavour and, using local Scottish flour in this process, allows for its quality to be fully celebrated

and appreciated.

Their business is an active supporter of the Real Bread Campaign which perfectly describes real bread: “Real Bread has nothing to hide. It is made with simple, natural ingredients and NO artificial additives

”. Wheatberry bread is exactly this; Local Scottish flour, salt, water – nothing to hide."

 SOJA BAKEHOUSE - GLASGOW

Ariel and Gerry met while working together at the Kember and Jones production unit – Ariel the baker and Gerry the driver. This is where Soja’s Bakehouse started but the story begins years before…

Ariel’s career in the kitchen began twelve years ago when he arrived in Glasgow from his native Poland. As a chef de partie in Café Zique, an opportunity arose to train as a baker. This is where Ariel discovered his true passion.

Gerry followed a similar path in hospitality, working across various roles in kitchens and bars across Glasgow, from the age of sixteen. When Gerry started working in Kember and Jones alongside Ariel they clicked instantly and would spend shifts discussing their desire to expand and develop the business. So when the opportunity arose to pursue their dream and open their own bakehouse they grasped this with both hands. It was with this leap of faith that Soja’s Bakehouse was born.

 BAVARIAN BAKEHOUSE - GLASGOW

A family business, the Bavarian Bakehouse use traditional methods to hand-craft artisan bread, cakes and patisserie. All preservative and additive-free, the range also includes organic, vegan and wheat or yeast free breads, made by a small team of bakers trained by founder Herr Wichmann in German bread baking.

 

Stone-based ovens and traditional clay baskets give real taste and crust to the large range of breads and rolls, which are made with wheat, rye and spelt grains. Organic, untreated and unbleached flours are used, as well as only butter, olive oil and vegetable margarine, making bread suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

Over the years the bread list has been supplemented by bagels, croissants, scones and a number of traditional cakes, as well as large fresh cream gateaux and logs serving 18 hungry people.

The Germans take baking seriously, and when Herr Wichmann founded the Bavarian Bakehouse in Kirkintilloch in 1984, he set about teaching the traditional skills of his homeland to a team of local bakers. The Wichmann family is now retired, but their successors continue to produce superior wheat, rye, sourdough and spelt loaves without preservatives or additives. Animal fats are avoided, making most breads suitable for vegans (although a few use butter). Other products include rolls, bagels, fresh cream cakes, pastries and – in one concession to Scotland’s own baking tradition – scones.

 MOSSGIEL ORGANIC FARM - MAUCHLINE

In the Family's own words: "Our sustainable farming dream began in early 2015. Farmer Bryce, the third generation of the Cunningham family to work the lands of the tenanted farm of Mossgiel, was fed up being controlled by an unforgiving dairy industry, controlled by mega-dairies.  Being paid just 15p per litre of milk to look after the ‘Mossgiel Girls’ (the herd of AWESOME Ayrshire cows who live on the farm with us) and provide an income for our family: meant we were losing £10,000 per month, it wasn’t sustainable – the future of our land, the girls and our home was under threat;

Things had to change! We took charge – we notified the dairy we would no longer be supplying them and decided we would offer the Mossgiel Girls awesome, non-homogenised milk directly; a pasteuriser was installed on-farm to reduce food miles to zero and we signed up to become an Organic dairy farm – we were ready to go! Starting with a few hugely enthusiastic supporters, in our native county of Ayrshire and quickly finding ourselves supplying some of the most highly regarded coffee shops all across Scotland – we couldn’t believe how much support the girls non-homogenised milk attracted.

 

Of course its not all about us and some white stuff – the Mossgiel Girls are at the very heart of our family farming story; eating what they should be – a purely Organic, grass based diet.  Spending the damp Ayrshire summers grazing the free-range historic pastures of Mossgiel Farm – the very farm that a mildly famous Scottish farmer by the name of ‘Robert Burns’ once wrote a few poems and songs. We are very excited to be on our journey to a sustainable, organic future – but we have many more chapters of our story to come…"

I.J.MELLIS CHEESEMONGERS - SCOTLAND

Before opening his first shop, partner and founder Iain Mellis had worked in the British cheese industry for almost 15 years. For some time he had felt that there was a lack of opportunity to buy high quality farmhouse cheese, both in the retail and wholesale sector. After much investigation and consultation in the UK and Europe, Iain decided upon a retail philosophy.

 

He wanted a traditional, old fashioned sense of service and style whilst using modern technology to maintain and enhance the unique characteristics of artisan cheese.One of the most important aspects of Iain’s thinking was flavour. Farmhouse cheese differs from mass-produced factory cheese because the milk comes from a single herd rather than several different sources.

In May 1993, Iain was ready to open his first shop.

He located a small, damp, cave-like shop halfway up Victoria Street in Edinburgh’s Old Town. It was an ideal location. It was a place that could be kept cool and damp without too much trouble – perfect for storing cheese!

5 shops and a thriving online marketplace later, Mellis Cheesemongers have now been trading for over 27 years, bringing together producers and consumers for mutual benefit. The aim for the future is to continue this process while continually striving to improve.

BALLOCHMYLE FINE CHEESE - MAUCHLINE

This family business has created a simply superb Ballochmyle Ayrshire Farmhouse Brie 

using milk from their own herd of Ayrshire Cows. 

 

The family have been dairy farmers at East Montgarswood Farm since the early 1920’s and is

truly a family affair with husband, wife, son and daughter all lending a hand. 

Ballochmyle has been in production since 2017

and has established as a highly desirable

Scottish Brie. Learning under the watchful eye

of renowned cheese authority Kathy Biss of

West Highland Dairy, it is no wonder their Brie

is consistently excellent.

 

Their rich milk from Ayrshire cows, the traditional breed for this part of Scotland, is perfect for this creamy medium soft cheese. Young Brie can be served firm and fresh and for those preferring a stronger cheese it matures to a rich melting sensation on the palate.

THE TOMATO STALL - ISLE OF WIGHT

What do these amazing growers say about themselves:

"Tomatoes have been growing in the rich and fertile Arreton Valley for over 30 years.

The Island’s unique maritime climate and our southern location on the Isle of Wight boasts some of the best sunshine levels in the UK, helping us grow some

of Britain's tastiest tomatoes.

Our entire growing system is completely biodegradable, from the coconut husk that our plants are grown in to the string that supports the plants. We compost all of our plant waste and use the resulting compost to enrich the soil of our organic crops the following year. Having our own composting facility also gives us the opportunity to fine-tune the nutrient requirements for specific organic crops. This has helped to reduce fertiliser inputs, improve soil fertility and structure which results in more delicious tomatoes.

The Isle of Wight Tomatoes name is a mark of quality and our assurance to you that your taste buds will appreciate your choice. All of our tomatoes are left to ripen on the vine and picked at their peak of flavour, reaching you bursting with freshness and naturally sweet. From juicy beef varieties to delightful golden plums we pride ourselves in bringing you the most unique selection of tomatoes, with the finest quality & fullest flavours."
